We Evolve Our Own is a spirit animal for Nikki. This lion represents the young and old. By covering the right side of the painting what remains appears young and bright. Cover the other side and the lion becomes elderly and dimmed. The lion wears a tiara of flowers to show the delicate beauty carried daily. The colors in the fur show the colorful representation of life. All the while, the lion is breaking through a brick wall. Yes, the eyes are not there. In fact, the eyes being absent makes the lion a mask, made to be wore be any and all strong souls that can see themselves wearing it.
