Le Cirque d' Amour et Gentillesse!


Presenting the leopard ringmaster of my circus...the master of ceremonies...the keeper of kindness! A few years ago, i did a sculpted piece with a cat standing above a birdbath holding birds in her hands. It was entitled "A True Friend is a Rare Bird". This piece was inspired a bit by that.

Truth be told, i am not big at all on actual circuses...not a fan of using animals as entertainment. But I love the magic and creativity behind it all. My circus animals have human qualities which makes you think that they ARE humans costumed as animals (as it should be in circuses...think Cirque du Soleil). The lettering at the top of the shadow box is the french translation of "The Circus of Love and Kindness". I think that sums up my concept purrrrrfectly :)1
This piece is available in my etsy shop.
