This lion graced the cover of the exhibition catalog for the first Fritz Hug exhibition in Zurich’s Helmhaus. The exhibition took place in 1970 under the patronage of the WWF and was dedicated to animal species threatened with extinction. Half of the proceeds from the exhibition went to the WWF for its valuable work. The painting was shown to the general public again in Zurich in 2022 as part of the “100 Years of Fritz Hug” exhibition.
