Powerful Panther

By Melvin Sandoval, San Felipe-Zuni

Animal: Mountain Lion, Material: Marble
This offering is sold.
This sleek and prowling Mountain Lion has been smoothly carved out of a beautiful piece of striated cougar colored marble by Melvin Sandoval. Its features have been smoothly sculpted, giving it a modern aerodynamic look. Melvin has offered this great teacher a point chipped from found stone. The rustic, ruff style of the point contrasts beautifully with the high polish of the marble. While the gold toned lichen, still visible on the point, repeats the warm colors.  This elegant feline is about 3 3/4" long and 1" tall.
