A mother and daughter from Windsor have made their own contribution to a life sized pride of sculpted lions standing guard across the Royal Borough.

The fibre glass lions will be there for three months to celebrate Queen Victoria's 200th birthday and and have been painted by artists from all over the world.

Designer Lisa Todd and her daughter artist Liv Clarke are both closely involved.

Lisa is an award-winning surface pattern designer who took to painting after developing a debilitating condition. Her lion Mr Rainbow was created in memory of her friend Simon Midgley who died in a fire.

Liv is in her third year studying Fine Art and the History of Art, at City and Guilds - and is about to start her third film for London Film School.

Her lion is called Victoria and has pride of place next to the statue of Queen Victoria outside Windsor Castle.

Robert Gramson, centre manager of Windsor Yards shopping centre which sponsored the lions, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Lions of Windsor Sculpture Trail to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth.

"There will be much to see on the trail including lion cubs designed by local schoolchildren, with plenty of photo opportunities to be had with the majestic sculptures. We look forward to welcoming many from near and far to join us in the celebrations and help with donations that will go directly towards funding worthwhile causes in the region.”
