panther's pride lifesize
Photograph by Mel Schockner.

"Although it is just the melanistic (dark) variety of the spotted leopard, the black panther's shadowy presence carries an aura of mystery, stealth and power all its own. This tender rendition of a mother panther and her cub shows another side of the mighty hunter: the maternalistic care she lavishes on her young, and the cub’s obvious bonding with his mother, upon whom he will be dependent until adolescence. The mother’s face projects not only her concern for the protection and nurturing of her offspring, to which she is totally committed, but also shows her obvious pride in the cub that she has produced and is successfully raising. This sculpture was commissioned as the fourth large panther of mine to roam the campus of Chapman University in Orange, CA, joining "Panther Alert" Lifesize, "Panther" Lifesize, and "The Leap" Lifesize in a sculptural style that ties various parts of the campus together." - Rosetta
