Head on Design: The King of the Jungle

Head on Design brings us a colourful celebration of African wildlife with beautiful decor featuring the king of the African jungle – the lion.

The lion is a symbol of majesty, courage, strength, protection, wisdom, and other admirable traits. Furthermore, as an icon of African wildlife, the lion is subsequently a symbol of Africa’s single-minded resolve to face and overcome challenges. In interior design, a lion head is therefore a statement piece. It encapsulates all of the above characteristics. Furthermore, it also becomes a beautiful focal piece with deeper meaning.

The below collection from Head of Design includes celebrates authentic African beauty…
