"Inspired by two photos I took of this Cheetah family in Africa last year, I just couldn't wait to do this sculpture of Mom sitting on a termite mound to scan the savanna for dinner, surrounded by the kids, only interested in play time. Through all of my previous Africa safaris I had futilely sacnned the landscapes for termite mounds with cheetahs on top. This sighting started out like so many others, with the cats mostly hidden in the grass where they were resting. But our patience paid off as Mom finally got up, walked to the mound and jumped up on top, followed by all three of her cubs. It was the highlight of the trip for me and I just couldn't resist doing this sculpture to immortalize the experience."
