Quoted directly from the article:
"A series of coincidences have weaved themselves together to create this fascinating celebration of Durand’s art and the Asian lions in the London zoo, which will help raise funds for the children’s hospice Demelza, based in Kent and South London. Daniel Weston, who posed as Daniel the prophet in Durand’s epic portrayal of one of the Old Testament’s most iconic stories – shares his name with the main subject of the story of DANIEL IN THE LIONS’ DEN. Daniel Weston also has the same name as one of Demelza’s patrons – the film starand loyal supporter of the charity Daniel Radcliffe. Radcliffe is coincidentally now the subject of Durand’s newest allegory, EQUUS. In one of the studies for EQUUS, Daniel Radcliffe is captured in a dramatic moment of transformation from boyhood to manhood."
