Winged Cat in Armour carving

Winged Cat in Armour carving
£20.00 1 Available
Love this

Description

This small relief piece was carved from a block of plaster after a trip to Chester Cathedral, the outer walls of which are adorned with medieval sculptures. Some of the imagery in church carvings seem to have roots in decidedly non-Christian traditions. With this carving I have melded my own love of cats with depictions of armoured angels such as Saint Micheal, to create my own piece of unique, secular carving. The cat here has a martial air, the wings of an eagle, and the armour of a sixteenth century warrior prince. The reverse is fitted with a saw-toothed hanger, so the piece can be easily hung from a nail or a hook. A coat of exterior varnish means the piece is suitable for display indoors of outside. Size: 8 c.m. x 8 c.m. approx. About 3 c.m. deep.
