Mountain-lion (cougar, puma or panther) is a stealthy hunter, with amazing physical abilities. They can jump about 15 feet high and 40 feet in distance. They are regarded as the great hunter by the Zunis. A mountain lion's presence is felt before it is seen. Christopher Sandoval's elegant feline brings all the characteristics we admire in these great cats. Carved from a stunning piece of bright red cuprite and green chrysocolla with piercing inlaid eyes of turquoise. This big cat measures 3 3/8" long, 1 5/8" wide by 1 1/4" tall.
