Caracal cat SAHARA
SAHARA is OOAK. She has been entirely designed and hand sewn by myself, in a smoke free environment. Many hours of patient work have gone into the conception and crafting of this cat.
MEASURES: length is 42 cm (16.5 inches) from nose tip to rear. Height from top of head (ears excluded) to floor is 37 cm (about 14.5 inches).
MATERIALS: White and sand Schulte alpaca. Faux fur for outer ears, ultra suede and mohair for inner ears. Sheep wool for the stuffing, with an addition of enclosed glass granulate for added weight. Horse hair for the whiskers.
FEATURES: Sahara has a needle felted face. Her eyes are of transparent German glass that I hand painted in shades of green and gold. Nose and paw pads have been sculpted from Apoxie clay and layer painted, for a very realistic effect.
Extensive shading has been done to body and face, to bring out the typical caracal cat striking features.
JOINTING and POSING: Sahara’s body has been designed in one piece. She has no joints. She has an internal padded wire frame that goes from her head to her back, and from there to all four legs. Her tail is also wired.
Thanks to these features Sahara can stand perfectly balanced on all fours, and can be also arranged in many different and realistic positions. Her feet can be delicately curved to give them a natural pose. Sahara can sit, lay, look up down or sideways.
I have made her an embroidered felt collar, which can be removed.
As with all my creations, Sahara comes to you with a specially embroidered felt birth certificate in matching style and materials.
SAHARA is a collector item not suitable for children. This creation is meant for display and not as a toy.
