Aslan of Narnia

Aslan, the noble lion of Narnia, is on guard along the shore of the Olympic National Park, Rialto Beach, Forks, Washington. Inside him are some of the many beings who make up his world.

Aslan on Watch

Aslan is the great lion in the Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. The books were made into a series of successful movies.

This portrait study is one of my most popular images and one of my personal favorites. It is one of the more prominent ancient cedar roots found at what is known as the Cedar Graveyard – Rialto Beach, Washington. The beach front faces a part of the Pacific shoreline historically buffeted by strong storms. Over the centuries many massive cedar trees have washed ashore and weathered into awe-inspiring sculptural tableaus.

In the long view of the great lion (to the right), you see him standing facing the ocean, his kingly mane flowing back in the wind. From his back extends a long cloak permanently fluttering in graceful folds. Inside his great body he is harboring many other life forms, large and small. Depending on your energy of the moment, you will see various images come forward then step back.
