Description: This cat is inspired by the original King Tut funerary mask, which has fascinated me since I first saw it on display as a child, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The modifications on this cat were done by hand with an epoxy resin called magic sculpt, painted with acrylic paints, and adorned with glass bugle beads on the collar. To see individual steps in the process of how it was made, visit me on Facebook/@JLDgallery, #Tutankhatmun.
