Tabby Cat Wall Sculpture

Designed as a holiday gift for my wife in 2018, this cat wall art features maple atop zebrawood and padauk. Reliefs are cut into the maple to allow for the zebrawood to show through to invoke the striping of a tabby cat. The stripes along the back were hand-carved to provide texture and shape. Finally, a heart shape was cut over the padauk, reflecting my wife’s love of her tabbys.
