The Sleeping Gypsy by Henris Rousseau is a fantasy painting that depicts an African gypsy sleeping in the desert on a moonlit night. The gypsy is dressed in an Oriental dress and is holding a water vessel. A lion is standing on the right side of the painting, looking down at the woman. The lion appears to be musing over the sleeping woman. 

The lion is a central figure in the painting. It is an emblem of the gypsy's culture and her ethnicity. It is also a symbol of adversity. The gypsy's face appears to be framed by a lion, which is a symbol of societal pressures. In the end, a lion and a gypsy both have the same meaning in the painting.

A curious and unique piece of art, The Sleeping Gypsy by Henris Rousseau was not immediately popular. Although Rousseau attempted to sell the work to the mayor of his hometown, he was not successful. Instead, the gypsy was purchased by a private collector, and it is now exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The piece is now in a private collection, which is a testament to its value.

Henri Rousseau's Sleeping Gypsy is a striking piece of modern art. It features simple geometric forms and flat planes of pure color. The painting's exotic subject, complemented by the mysterious lion, asserts its status as a unique form of modern art. The unnerving eye of the lion and the zipper-like teeth of the figure add even more to its mystical aura.

Aside from the mythological meaning of the painting, the gypsy was a religious figure. She was an ascetic in the desert. A lion passes by, but does not devour the gypsy. Her clothing is a mixture of western and oriental styles. The Sleeping giraffe in Henri Rousseau's painting is an intriguing and fascinating piece of art.
