sculpture is a study in fluid motion. And what better subject than
the feline form to provide the shapes and lines that express that
concept? The challenge is to make sure that every shape in the sculpture
is pleasing in and of itself while at the same time contributing
to the overall flow of the piece, all the while maintaining the

ground. This most graceful leap is very characteristic of this most
graceful cat." - Rosetta
