A member of this leading family of carvers, Wilfred’s prize-winning work is eagerly collected, and is in museum collections as well. This playful mountain lion cub shows off the realistic style of carving that he adopted, after Dan Quam pioneered it in the early 1980’s.
Tail up, weight back, ready to jump at a mouse, or its own shadow, this blue-eyed cat is seen in mid-motion. The use of parti-colored Picasso marble seems to identify this frisky feline as a calico cat, but the carved furry pelt, thick tail and big ears, suggests it is a bobcat or mountain lion cub. You can decide for yourself.
Once you own a carving you can call it whatever you like, but that this is an delightfully animated, well-carved and decorative piece is beyond question. Lots of fun, with no maintenance and no danger!
