Mountain Fishing - mountain lion by  Rosetta
  Mountain Fishing  (1996)
Subject: mountain lion
Dimensions (inches): 19 x 34 x 20
Medium: Bronze
Description: America's lion (Mountain Lion, Cougar, Puma) is a skilled and formidable predator, its favorite prey being deer. But when a good-sized meal isn't available, smaller snacks are welcome. Although not terribly fond of water, the Mountain Lion will readily get wet if it means a meal!

The pose depicted in this piece catches a Mountain Lion perched on a few rocks jutting out of the water, getting ready to swipe at a fish just out of sight below the surface. The life-sized version would look great installed in a small pond.

What I like about this pose is that it has interesting silhouettes from every angle and makes a striking piece in an intimate setting.

The Life-sized version was commissioned by Hewlett-Packard for their Colorado Memory Systems facility in Loveland, CO, and was featured in the exhibition, 'Animal Instincts' at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum in Wausau, WI and has since been purchased for permanent display there.
