Brief Description A moment immortalized, this sculpture captures the act of a predator and its prey. The cat has just caught a bird, and that moment has been translated into a bronze sculpture. The artist has effectively depicted the animal movement, the moment of capture, as perhaps a metaphor of being caught off-guard or being destroyed helpless once caught by the powerful.
