All Blacks legend Richie McCaw has teamed up with prominent artist Dick Frizzell to create a life-sized lion sculpture as part of New Zealand’s contribution to the global Tusk Lion Trail campaign.

Tusk, of which His Royal Highness Prince William is Patron, has launched more than 45 life-sized lion sculptures onto the streets of iconic cities including Edinburgh, New York, London, Bristol, Nairobi, Sydney, and Wellington – with each sculpture created by an internationally recognised celebrity.

New Zealand was been invited to show its support for the global campaign, with Richie McCaw and Dick Frizzell conceptualizing a striking black lion, complete with silver fern.  

The Lion was installed on the forecourt of Parliament on World Lion Day – Tuesday August 10th - where it will remain for the next six weeks.  New Zealand was the first country in the world to unveil its art piece, kicking off a series of activity from international cities.

The population of African lions is estimated to have declined by as much as 50% over the last 25 years. There are now fewer wild lions left in the world than rhinos. Each sculpture will highlight the magnificence of lions, threats to their existence and the people and solutions working for their survival - raising awareness for conservation efforts across the world.
