NEW Lion Statue with Plant Mane, aka Huge Outdoor Chia Pet!
Finally I've made the mane: I took apart some old white hanging shelves we had, that seem to be made of the same material as reusable shopping bags, which supposedly can be used as planters. I sewed the fabric into rectangular pockets (plus a triangular one for the top of the lion's head), arranged them on the statue and hand sewed them together into a headdress, cut slits in each pocket to add potting soil, spray painted the headdress to match the statue, then finally added the dirt and plants!
Thanks for looking!
