AN Instow artist is getting her teeth - and paws - into a very special assignment that's set to be the "pride" of Bath this summer.
Jacqui Harrison is one of 100 artists who have been commissioned to decorate a life-size lion sculpture for the "Lions of Bath" project. The fibreglass lions, sponsored by businesses, local communities and individuals, will go on display around the city from the end of the month until mid-September, when they will then be auctioned off for charity.
The Gazette caught up with Jacqui, a teaching assistant at Braunton School and Community College, as she put the finishing touches to the lion she has affectionately named "Frank".
Her lion, sponsored by architectural salvage firm Masco, was being transported to Bath yesterday (Tuesday).
