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 other's company, yet alert and vigilant in anticipation
of the lonely life of challenge that awaits them." - Rosetta
