Product Description

1994

35” x 27”

Imagine for a moment the overwhelming challenge of painting the intricate markings of a Leopard. These markings, also called “rosettes” are made up of three or four different black spots on the outside with a yellow-brown center. Besides capturing these intricate rosettes also consider needing to compose the texture of hair. On top of that, think about the immense task of mimicking those intricate markings in the reflection of still water with uncanny accuracy… This is what Escalera has done in this piece. He accomplished all this, while still highlighting the leopard's strong maternal bonds with her cubs.


Leopards are elusive, solitary and largely nocturnal. However a mother's bond with her cubs is awe-inspiring. Even though the young become independent between 18-24 months, the mother may continue to share kills with her offspring until they become totally self-sufficient.


The protective mother takes a cautious sip with her cub tucked close to her side. The male cub rests next to his mother leisurely, knowing that he’s being protected. The mother’s fierce green eye looks through the painting…..almost as if she sees you…..
