    Ken Kelly - "Lion's Den" Conan Painting Original Art (1990). Surely one of the most vibrant Conan images ever created, this painting has been used for posters, advertising pieces, collector's cards, and even as the cover to The Art of Ken Kelly book. Kelly says, "I wanted to put this warrior in as much trouble as the 'Conan' character gets in. Also, because this was to be the cover for my first book, I deliberately put in as many extra items, and as many cats, as I could squeeze in. I wanted it very powerful and very memorable." This framed oil painting on board is in Excellent condition. It measures approximately 45" x 35" overall, and is signed and dated by the artist in the lower left corner.
