Animal: Mountain Lion, Material: Marble
This offering is sold.
Melvin Sandoval's old-style Mountain-lion (cougar, panther or puma) is elegantly sculpted, with the rustic, rough style of the found stone point contrasting beautifully with the lovely polish of the marble. In the old days, felines were carved like this, with their long tails presented up and over their backsides. About 4 3/4" long, 1" wide and 1 1/8" tall.
