Having a taxidermist in the family gave me a unique opportunity to study lots of animals up close, this bobcat was one of those. This bobcat was posed in the Stalking position, the moment he was approaching his prey. Working some in taxidermy gave me a chance to learn about the inside, the bones and muscle structure, of different animals and birds. As a sculptor friend told me one time, if you can’t see the inside of something, you can’t sculpt the outside of it. Grateful for the opportunity to see the inside.
