A Domesticated Cat


This surrealist scene gently pokes fun at our tendency to attribute human characteristics to our pets. Here, a lioness carrying her cub strolls through a museum in front of “paintings” (digitally manipulated photographs) of lions “crowned” with necklaces I designed. Fully appreciating the cub's expression requires seeing this up close, making this framed sculpture especially suited for small spaces.

Perhaps the lioness is giving her cub an art lesson or showing him what he will become when he grows up. What do you think is going on?

Whatever the lioness is thinking, the cub clearly wishes he were somewhere else, as indicated by his less-than-thrilled expression reflected in the mirror.

The tawny colors of the lions in the photographs, the lioness and her cub contrast with the olive green walls and the reddish-brown wooden floor of the room.
Materials used to create this mixed media scene include dollhouse miniatures, wood, mirror, a realistic model of a lioness with her cub, and paper.

Custom framed with museum glass in a sophisticated deep wooden frame in collaboration with Chevy Chase Art Gallery, Washington, DC.
