What fabulous artwork, Nicki, your snow leopard is so alive that his spirit radiates from the eyes.

A few moments ago on TV there was a "Save the Snow Leopard" appeal. It is being hunted for its fur and some potion made from its bones. Hard to believe isn't it.

Beautiful painting. Those paws look so nice and fluffy but I don't think I'd want to get too close to the real thing.
