Artist Vincent Elliott has installed a colourful temporary sculpture Roaming Lion at Ryrie Reserve in Como. 

The sculpture consists of a number of colourful abstract elements in a three-dimensional installation. When viewed from the right angle, the image of a large lion comes into focus.

The work references the big cat residents of the Perth Zoo, and also playfully refers to the fact that Lions live in “reserves” of a slightly different kind in other parts of the world.   

The temporary art installation has been extended and will now be on display until 30 June 2020.

The A-Reserve program of temporary public art commissions artworks for selected green spaces, distributed around the whole of the City of South Perth. This program seeks to provide "front-row" arts and cultural experiences to people who reside in different parts of the City. View more Public Art in the City.
