A house cat sits very comfortably, looking right at you, within the confines of this longish rectangular box. For some reason, I think this cat will win this staredown! A gold and silver ornament frames the scene, and a more colorful one with radiant gold winds itself around the side. The box is made out of high quality papier mache and sits on four small round legs. It is signed with the name of the artist, village, and title. A very quaint scene with the cat as the star of the show.
