Sonny Craig Gurulé has a long-standing love of big cats, and became fascinated with the story of Scarface, a wild male African lion who gained recognition when he survived a spear injury that caused a vivid scar over his right eye and earned him his name. His tenacity and survival inspire this beautiful portrait Scarface by Sonny that we are auctioning to support Lions Tigers & Bears, a big cat and exotic animal rescue in Alpine, California. The painting is oil and gold leaf on unstretched primed canvas and is sold as is so that we can work with the auction winner to frame it to their preferences and at their expense.
