Tuesday Treasure - Nano Lopez

Hi cats and kittens, meet Simon.   He is a bronze sculpture by Colombian artist Nano Lopez that Robert and the cats gave me for my birthday today ...

Simon is 7" high and 4lbs of strutting, preening fabulousness!!!

I first saw him back in May at a Gallery in Hawaii when we were on our honeymoon and I've been pining for him ever since.  See Simon's official description below :-)

Simon~
 He is a proud student, expert whistler, seen here strolling down the street on his way to the grocery store, hoping to be seen by any of the neighborhood cute girls. And he believes in angels and well combed hair.

What a gorgeous piece! I love his work and have been a fan for years! His pieces are so evocative and spontaneous. And the colours he uses in his patinas are wonderful.
You are a lucky woman. Thanks for sharing. What do your cats think of the piece?

Happy Birthday Cat! What a gorgeous bronze sculpture is Simon!
I can certainly see why you fell in love with it.

Any how appropriate -- a cat for Cat on her birthday!

Of course even Simon can't compare with the beauty of your five real darlings. Wishing you lots of kitty love on this special day.

Simon is GORGEOUS and I love the description. I think Mom would like him too. There is nothing happier than a cat with a high flying tail!!

Happy birthday, Cat!

It seems you married the right man, who is showing so much attention! And who seems to love the pets as much as you do! This reminds me of my own husband, who proposed 28 years ago, and my answer was "if you take me, you also take the 3 dogs and the 5 cats", and his answer was "I take everything"...
