Pewter Panther - black leopard by  Rosetta
  Pewter Panther  (1995)
Subject: black leopard
Dimensions (inches): 6 x 5 x 2
Medium: pewter
Description: This is a miniature version of a larger Panther, three sizes of which are sold out.

Although it is just the melanistic (dark) variety of the spotted Leopard, the Black Panther's shadowy presence carries an aura of mystery, stealth and power all it's own.

The same skill and strength that make him the consummate predator also make the Leopard a powerful climber with agility unparalleled by any of the other big cats. Thus, in attempting to capture the essence of this most formidable feline, I chose a pose which would embody both the attitude of a climber and the stealthy stalk of the hunter.

A laarger version of this sculpture was awarded the Donald R. Miller Memorial Award by the Society of Animal Artists in 1990, and was purchased for display in the Tactile Gallery in the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center.

It has been exhibited at the National Academy of Design, The National Sculpture Society, and the Museum Without Walls in New York, as well as in Museums in WY, CA, NJ, VA, OH, and CO. It was also in the 'Cat Spirit/Cat Strength' two-person exhibition at the Beacon Street Gallery in Geneva IL, 'American Women Artists' at Trailside Gallery in AZ and the Smithsonian's Conservation Research Center in VA.
