When you stare into the eyes of a giant land cat, what are you seeing? Strength? Worry? Pure Natural Instinct? It is a creature of undeniable power and – due to man’s overreach – incredible vulnerability. Simultaneously at the top of the food chain and next on the extinction list.

If we could peer into their minds, through the power of advanced 3D holographic technology, however briefly, we’d be exposed to a familiar yet altogether foreign world. Fractals, designs, tessellations, those posters of expensive sports cars on fire – all pale to the inner secrets of a Lion.


But I imagine the Brain of a Lion is filled with a thousand unsorted recipe cards and an ever-growing, ever-spinning, ever-lasting buzz saw.
