Climbing Leopards Sculpture Hand Carved In Zimbabwe
This beautiful African Climbing Leopards sculpture was handmade by Shona artisans in Zimbabwe, South Africa. The artisan meticulously hand-painted the leopards with the small, densely packed rosettes that characterize these great and opportunistic hunters and shows them climbing a tree. Leopards spend a lot of their time in trees. Their spotted coat covers them, making them mix in with the leaves of the tree. The African leopard is an elegant and powerfully built predator. It is the most secretive and elusive big cat, and arguably one of the most beautiful members of the entire big cat family.
