Melvin Sandoval is skilled at capturing an animal's essence in stone with elegant and minimalistic carving, as is the case with this marvelous Bobcat pair. The green serpentine and creamy pink Elkhorn marble stones are a splendid pairing. The couple are bound with a string of turquoise, shell and magnesite beads at the waist. Together they measure about 3 1/4" long, 1 1/2" wide by 1 1/2" tall.
