From the Artist: Parker Elementary is a music magnet school and our mascot is Randall the Roaring Lion. We were inspired by both our lion mascot and our passion for music. Many of the instruments were donated by families at our school. Our students painted the instruments and the car itself. Parker parents and teachers adhered the instruments to the top of the car to create the mane of our lion. Parker Art Club, with the help of parent Ashley Hope built the eyes, nose and ears for our lion.
