Cat and Bird

Parts Series #39: “Cat & Bird”, 12/21/09, 9” high x 7 1/4” x 7 1/4”, mixed media, including 1 blue cat figure, one bird with human arms instead of wings, 2 wings, 6 stars, one blue ball, and a belled box placed on a square base.

“Cat & Bird” is also a part of my Parts Series, a series of brightly-colored, fantastical sculptures . The inclusion of the pomegranates and bells was inspired by the design of the robes of the High Priest (Kohan Gadol). The bells on the hem of his garment would sound as he walked (as found in the text of Exodus 27:20-30:10).
