"Striking Piece of Artwork"

The beadwork on this item is stunning. I only wish that the head and ears on mine were a little more cat-like. (I am a cat lover.)

"Prominately displayed in my home."

This panther is gorgeous. I am constantly amazed by the sheer talent so constantly on display with all of the Novica artists, and this multi-colored panther is certainly no exception. The beautiful and time consuming artistry of this fabulous sculpture always brings a huge smile to my face everytime I see it. The melange of color from the beadwork alone coupled with the exquisite ebony color of the panther itself always elicits awe and curiosity from the family and friends that I show it to. Thank you so very much for one of my very favorite possessions. Bert Burgess
