Details

With ears at attention and golden eyes watchful, a cat is ever alert. Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya explores the feline mystique in a beautiful doll, crafted by hand. Carved from crocodile wood and dressed in handloomed ikat cloth, the colorful kitty can be posed in a variety of positions. It can be displayed either alone or on a base.

"Ikat" means means "to knot" in the Malaysian language, and the threads are tie-dyed before weaving.

"Unique item for cat lovers"

As a lover of cats and ethnic arts, I couldnt resist this doll. In fact, Ive bought one for myself, as a gift for a cat-loving friend who did me a big favor and to donate to the fundraiser for a local cat rescue, where it sold for more than its retail value in the silent auction. Its a truly beautiful item (the painting is exquisite).

"Mystery Cat - Just what are you thinking?"

We love our Mystery Cat! I am so happy to see there are more for others to buy and enjoy. Exceptional craftsmanship/artistry. We now have a real cat whose face looks just like this cat.... Hmmm.....Very interesting.....and we always wonder just what his is thinking.

"Stunning!"

Our ?Mystery Cat? arrived yesterday and we are astounded by the beautiful colors and details that make up this piece of art. The picture on line is very good, but pales in comparison to the real thing! The cat arrived beautifully gift wrapped and securely packed. We got back on line and ordered a second one to present as a special gift.

I just received my Storyteller Hippo. It is as delightful in person as it is in the photos online. I am impressed with the beautiful artwork that makes this storyteller doll unique. I would love to order at least one more so that the hippo has company. Thanks for sharing your talent!

The ""Lotus Buddha"" came today, and I am beyond pleased! This piece has definitely exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for creating such beautiful work!
