This carving came from a Saturday morning market a year ago. It was at the bottom of a box of goods.
The carving has great tension: are the cats at play or are they about to erupt? I've tried to show some of the power of the carving in my photos.
I believe the wood is ebony or "Pangge Baya".
If you have any suggestions about where this might have been made I'd appreciate your feedback.
