Retro Modern Mid Century Cat FOLK ART ?
Retro Modern Mid Century meets a whittler or amateur woodworker in this pair of folk art cats. Hilarious. The form is as familiar as an Eames chair, but these folky felines were apparently made in the basement. Abstracted American Caticus.
The American Pet Products Association say there are 86.4 million cats in the United States. As you can see from the quick screen grab below, there may be that many sculptures as well.
