The Night Lion (Blue Lion) was created and decorated in the "City of the Lion" (Lviv) at the urban art festival "Parade of Lions." It was presented to Donetsk from Lviv, in 2009. Blue Lion is a pledge of friendship between Eastern and Western Ukraine.
The Lion sculpture because of its fragility, was covered with special protective equipment to ensure the safety of the sculpture. By decision of the state administration, the blue lion with a mane of gold, is housed in a central city Shcherbakova park, and although the official opening of sculpture did not happen, this monument to friendship is rather enjoyed by the great popularity among adults and children.
