Where are your White Lions?

“And I asked the people of the Timbavati, where are your White Lion?

I never received a straight answer.” Credo Mutwa.

White Lion are considered by African Shamans to be the most sacred and spiritual of all animals. And yet to date no laws exist to protect them.

Less than 500 White Lion are estimated to exist. They are only born wild in the Timbavati and hence High Sanusi Credo Mutwa’s question to the people of the Timbavati. However this question is for all mankind who have failed to protect these wonderful animals.

In my image I have used the shattered tree to symbolize the near extinction of the White Lion. The ghost image of the lion symbolizes that one day without our intervention the White Lion may only exist in the memories of the Ancient people. I have kept the landscape barren and stark as it has been said that the extinction of the White Lion, the apex of the animal kingdom would affect all living things. The tree is one that I photographed on the White Lion sanctuary property. Someone had knocked hundred of nails into the tree and it was dying when Linda moved onto the property. Linda removed the nails and the tree has flourished. I have shown the tree in its torment, it too shouting to mankind to save the White Lion and to save our planet.

Purchasing - Mystery of the White Lion Collection

The collection consists of 23 artworks created in Veronica Coetzer’s unique photomontage style that she developed to assist herself and other trauma and abuse victims in the healing process.

Each work is filled with meaningful imagery, symbols and motives that become evident upon close inspection. The works tell the story of the White Lion from the earliest days from the time of the Sabre Tooth and the First Man, through the time of the Pharaoh's till today.
