Subject: two young Mountain Lions Dimensions (inches): 58 x 146 x 60 Medium: Bronze Description: The dichotomy of life for a litter of wild feline cubs is a familiar story: the carefree antics of kittens at play and the ever-present threat of death by starvation or predation.
But for those who survive these perilous times, the period of adolescence and young adulthood which follows, is one that holds a particular fascination for me. The siblings still share a strong enough bond to keep them together, but soon must split up to form territories of their own, as all big cats except the Lions are solitary creatures.
The two Mountain Lions in this sculpture are at that point in their lives. Relaxed and secure in each others company, yet alert and vigilant in anticipation of the lonely life of challenge that awaits them.
This over-life-sized version of 'Siblings' was commissioned by the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago and can bee seen in front of their administration building on Clark Street at Armatige.
