Although mountain lions are solitary creatures, Melvin Sandoval's marble Mountain-lions (cougar, puma or panther) are bound together at about 3 1/4" long, 1 1/4" wide and 1 1/4" tall. Just because they are solitary doesn't mean they don't have a social structure and family life. We love how Melvin carved one feline with a turned head in concern for its mate. A fine heishe, white shell and turquoise bead offering bundle joins these two great felines.
