Mountain Lion Relief Carving 


For sale: $250

Here is a very rare opportunity to purchase a piece of original art from my carving studio. Almost every item I carve is by commission, so I don’t often have items for sale to the general public. I’ve been slowly working at this piece for several months, in a spare hour here or there. It is finished and is for sale. 

This cougar, or mountain lion, is powerful and fearless. It could kill you in a few seconds and eat you with no remorse. It is not preparing to attack, but is stepping towards you with some interest. Where are it’s feet? How close is it? Do you know how to defend yourself if need be? 

It is a project that I have dreamed of doing for years but only decided on the design last fall. It is carved in low relief, only 2mm high and very challenging to convey all of the above and more.

It is carved in aspen wood, and is 6″ x 8.5″. It is finished with a water borne enamel. 

If you purchase it, you will need to display it properly and with good lighting. Here is a video to show you how to do that:
