Not sure if it's native art, or sort of a spiritual type piece, but we sure would like to find out. You know it's the "curiosity and cat thing" This seems to be nothing but a sheet of pretty thick leather, that it has been shaped and dried to a point that it has absolutely no give or flexibility whatsoever. It's really lifelike. Does any one have any idea what it is that we're looking at? I think it's really quite intriguing.

    Looks like something made on the islands. Maybe Haiti, Jamaica,Dominican Republic or lesser Antilles.

    Search under leather sculptures.
    There's a French site here:
