"......Here I explore the habitat of the leopard. Although they do inhabit forested areas, generally they enjoy rock outcrops and it is there that they can lie and look around at the surrounding plains. In this piece the leopard is surveying its territory from the highest vantage point, from the coolness of a rock overhang. The rock itself is a compositional element of the sculpture. The shape and the form, almost a wedged form, is reminiscent of and evokes the power and angularity of the leopard lying on top of it. The textures of the rock are echoed, as always, in the textures of the cat itself."
