Outstretched Orthoceras Mountain Lion

By Kenric Laiwakete

Animal: Mountain Lion, Material: Orthoceras
This offering is sold.
Carved from a dynamic orthoceras fossil specimen, Kenric Laiwakete's elongated Mountain-lion (or panther) hosts three inlaid heartlines of turquoise, with turquoise inlaid eyes. The heartline represents the breath or essence of an animal. The reverse side of this feline showcases a longer orthoceras, which Kenric thoughtfully used like a heartline as well. Don't miss this extraordinary cat with incised whiskers, coming in at a healthy 7 1/2" long, 3/4" wide and 1 3/4" tall.
