"Cat", May Jones Perkins, 12" x 9" x 12", sandstone (limestone?), 35lbs. From my collection. This is by a late local artist who passed at age 93 in 2013. It is one of my favorite things. I forgot to ask May what kind of stone it is before she passed. She worked in everything from fabric, to stone, more mediums than any other artist I've ever known and was expert in all of them. She was a tiny woman, about 4' 11" with an exuberant personality. More of her work can be seen on my web site, http://kevindaniel.x10.mx/illinois.html.
