A Lion's Pride

In Egyptian mythology, there was a fierce warrior goddess named Sekhmet who had the head of a lion. Both a healer and a hunter, she would protect the pharaoh in battle, destroying her enemies with flaming arrows. How awesome is that? We can't get a cat to even come when we call.

Show off your own leonine spirit with this bold, papier-mache lion head. A traditional symbol of courage, authority and wisdom, this folk art creation brings a fearless energy to any room.

Not only that, this lion's gift of strength extends to others as well: it's produced by an initiative that employs 200 talented artisans in Haiti. Handmade from recycled materials, the form is crafted from recycled cement sacks, cardboard, and vibrantly colored fabric scraps, sealed together using an arrowroot starch glue. Comes packed in a re-usable box made from recycled newspaper. Handmade in Haiti.

In 2010, a massive earthquake struck Haiti, killing an estimated 316,000 people and leaving countless others injured and homeless.

Fair trade artisans working in Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, and in Leogane, the town most affected by the magnitude 7.0 earthquake, now work to bring money back into the communities they are struggling to rebuild.

Thanks to Aid to Artisans and the fair trade certified companies with which they work these artisans are ensured safe working conditions and given fair wages.
