Unique embellished limited edition print by the UK's best selling and most collectable pencil artist



This touching drawing of love and friendship was commissioned by Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers, following George Adamson's tragic murder. It portrays George's two favourite lions, Boy and Christian, the World famous Youtube sensation.



The title 'FRIENDSHIP' was chosen jointly by Virginia and Gary. This print was published in 2000 and was sold out even before publication, such was its impact. So with demand way beyond its limited supply, this is a genuine investment opportunity for collectors and a unique chance to enjoy this much sought-after image. .



It is print number 584/1250 and is unframed. Image size 39cm x 30cm. Personally signed by Gary Hodges and Born Free Co-Founder Virginia McKenna OBE.



For this special auction Gary spent many hours adding thousands of new pencil strokes onto this print, making it totally unique and more like an original drawing. Since 2015, Gary has embellished almost 200 different prints for various charities including Born Free. In 2016 a 'Snow Leopard' embellished print sold at Mall Galleries for an amazing £6,700. The auctioneer was James Lewis! Since 2005, he has auctioned many of Gary's prints and originals with fantastic success.



With a great passion for all animals, Gary Hodges has been a loyal Born Free friend for over 32 years and his stunning artwork is a sell-out success, raising vital funds for our work to protect wild animals.
