Panther, leather covered
Click to enlarge image(s)
The bulging muscles beneath the leather overlay shows an excellent understanding of feline anatomy.  The addition of slashes on the rib cage suggest an undernourished beast determined to get a meal NOW!  A close look at teeth and whisters are not convincing but from a distance the stark white fangs show up vividly  against the red painted roaring mouth.  The flattened ears and glittering black eyes contribute to imagining a flicking tail and twitching nose.  To mind comes Ogden Nash's "Panther:"  The panther is like a leopard,/  Except it hasn't been peppered./  Should you behold a panther/  Crouch,/  Prepare  to say ouch./  Better yet, if called by a/  Panther,  Don't anther.
