"I wish I could say the inspiration for this piece came on some high-country camping expedition when a wild lynx strolled through my camp. But it actually came from the "Tonight Show" when a guest naturalist brought a lynx on stage. My first reaction was:
"My God, that cat is all legs and feet!" Subsequent research revealed that one of the few ways to tell a lynx from a bobcat is that the feet are larger in proportion to the rest of the body. This is because they act as snowshoes. To me, this characteristic, along with the large eyes and ears of these cats, keeps them looking like kittens even in adulthood. The first bronze in this edition was permanently installed in a beautiful rock garden in front of The Home State Bank in Loveland, CO, in August 1993."
