About the lion I have incorporated my sketches of the custom-made design pieces of jewellery and also the images of the finished pieces as a collage on the lion sculpture and painted in between of the prints. The work has been hand painted and coated with varnish and clear sprays. Singto means 'lion' in Thai so seemed a very appropriate name for our lion!
About the sponsor Thai Square is where delicious comes to life. We’re a family of restaurants, each with our own unique character, but all sharing the same love for authentic Thai cuisine served up with the warmest of welcomes. Opposite the famous Windsor castle, our light and bright Windsor restaurant offers a dining experience fit for royalty. We’ve been creating authentic regionally-inspired Thai cuisine since we opened our first restaurant in The Strand in 1996, and, though we’ve grown to 13 places, each has its own approach, unique flavours and personality but all share the same ethos: passionate chefs creating gorgeous dishes, served up in surroundings which inspire and transport our guests. We are proud to be a part of this project. Situated right opposite Windsor castle, Thai Square Windsor is one of the best spots to showcase our Thai inspired lion. We work with a reputable Thai artist, NA SONGKHLA, Rojanatorn, M.L. to create a unique, refined and vibrant Lion of Windsor”. Said Ami Rienjaroensuk (General Manager).
