Kira's Cheetah

As promised, here is a picture of Kira's papier-mâché cheetah. I just love how it came out, and as soon as she brings it back from the Academic Fair, I am going to display it as sculpture. Kira said that she thinks it has a very African feel to it, almost like it was made in Africa as a piece of art, and I have to agree. I offered to put a topcoat on it, but she thought she should leave it matte, since that looked more like an African sculpture.

She could sell that. It's a work of art. I could see a restaurant buying it. If *I* owned a restaurant, I'd prop it on a high place, looking like it's about to pounce on unsuspecting human diners.

BM,
It would probably scare people more if it was bigger than 12" long. ;)

BM & Brenda,
Thank you. She worked really hard on it and I think it paid off.
