Aslan, the noble lion of Narnia, is on guard, along the shore of the Olympic National Forest, Rialto Beach, Forks, Washington. Inside him are some of the many beings who make up his world.
This massive cedar root structure is one of the more prominent sculptures at what is known as the Tree 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 of complex roots.
In the long view of the great lion, 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.
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.
