The Feline Oracles

on January 27, 2011 - 8:58am


I was recently presented with the photograph of one of the most regal looking cats I've ever seen from someone hoping I could make two figures in honour of her beloved furry creatures.

I've said it before: nature trumps art every time. This cat was beautiful. And I'm not a cat person, so for me to be going on about a kitty says a lot. Something in the eyes. Wise. Confident. So much so, I could imagine telling this cat my problems.

Quickly, I knew I couldn't do the animal justice if I attempted to do a reproduction. So instead, I went with inspiration.

Thus, the Feline Oracles were born. Heads a little larger than normal, with features exaggerated slightly, I wanted them to clearly resemble cats but have a subtle variation that set them apart.

Their white prayer scarves are a nod to the beautiful tuft of white fur on their chests.

I hope she likes them, and that I've done justice to the two cats - Star and Angel - to whom these figures are dedicated.
