"This sculpture was produced after a rare encounter with a female leopard in the wild. David was accompanied on his visit by an experienced tracker.  Here he describes his experience: 'We tracked her for about two and a half hours. Our tracker realised she was heading round a koppie (hill) so he rushed us to the top of the koppie to a shelf of rock where we lay in wait. After two and a half hours this animal walked right under us!  The leopard is such a regal creature, truly inspiring.'" Jenny Tomlinson (the artist's wife), January 2018.
