Majestic

What do you follow?

Using imagery from the safari plains of Tanzania, this thoughtshort explores the nature of lions.

From their serene beauty to their raw power, lions create a sense of fear and fascination. It is no wonder that they often receive the title ‘majestic’.

The word majestic has its origins in describing both royalty and the divine. At its core, it means something that is superior, better, something that is worthy of our admiration.

Armies have followed the symbol of the lion into battle, and even – to death.
But why?

Because there is, in each of us, a desire to live, fight and die for something worthwhile. Something superior. Something Majestic.
