Hush, Little Baby


Stoneware Slumbering Feline Bas Relief Paperweight Sculpture (LEO Design)


Felines are the "royalty" of the pet world. They sleep up to 16 hours a day and hunt at night (if they can), sometimes bringing their catch home as an offering to their human consort. There are 38 species of cat worldwide, with all but the "house cat" being wild. But do not let your little puss fool you!  Within it's small and silky frame beats the heart of a LEO huntress—and she retains all the instincts of her larger, wilder relatives.

This little paperweight—a curled-up, slumbering feline—captures the huntress at her most docile. It is sculpted of stoneware and finished with a caramel-brown glaze. Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
