Introducing the Barbary Lion, an exquisite piece custom designed and fabricated by Banyakob Clothing. This large, hand-painted medallion is a testament to the power and majesty of the Barbary Lion.

The Barbary lion, a subspecies of the lion native to North Africa's Atlas Mountains and the Barbary Coast, is now considered extinct in the wild. Known for its majestic appearance with a distinctive and often darker mane, these lions once inhabited regions of Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia but succumbed to extinction in the mid-20th century due to factors such as habitat loss and human conflict. Despite their historical cultural significance, the Barbary lion's survival now relies on conservation efforts to maintain their genetic heritage and, potentially, reintroduce them into the wild through captive populations, though challenges persist in reestablishing this magnificent subspecies in its original range.
