This whimsical sculpture of a cat is inspired by an image found in the famous "Book of Kells". Made of a resin with a ceramic core, this piece has a highly polished bronze shell. Created by hand from Wild Goose Studio, the piece is lightweight. May be used outdoors but may turn green through exposure to the elements. Measures 5"x3". The cat has a flat undecorated back.
"Look into the great Chi-Rho page and one is led literally on a cat-and-mouse chase; towards the bottom left of the page two cats sit facing each other seemingly unperturbed by four mice at play. The pair in the middle hold a communion wafer marked with a cross, just one of several variations on holy rebirth and renewal." (quote taken from Celtic Art From Its Beginnings to the Book of Kells by Ruth and Vincent Megaw).
