Description
A stylized image of fierceness, this roaring feline perhaps once guarded a temple or a palace. Since the dawn of time, man has admired the leopard as a symbol of nobility, swiftness and strength. Many royal lines have chosen this big cat as a graceful metaphor for their earthly power. In this superb Indian sculpture, we feel those regal qualities still, an impression only enhanced by the passage of centuries. - (PF.0212)
