Lion up for Carnegie's tribute to the king of the jungle. Glowing ruby red cabochon eyes and faux Persian turquoise accent beads punctuate an already commanding presence. With his magnificent mane and upswept whiskers he adorned with a swag of golden chains. A long tapered blade like spear extends from his jaw. Fiercely friendly. Courageous and kingly. Carnegie's the ringmaster of the pride.
