This acrobatic cat is typical in style for Margarito Melchor Fuentes, who is famous for his cat carvings. The cat can be displayed either balancing on its 2 front legs or stretched out on all 4 legs. Margarito is a well-known Mexican artisan, whose work graces the cover of one of the best-known books covering Oaxacan woodcarvings, "Oaxacan Woodcarving, The Magic in the Trees", by Shepard Barbash. Great gift for a cat-loving yoga people, collectors of these alebrijes (Oaxacan Woodcarvings) or collectors of Mexican folk art.

Carved (& signed) by Margarito Melchor Fuentes, in San Martin Tilcajete, Oaxaca Mexico

The tail is removable, but I suggest gluing it in place (white glue does the trick well) upon arrival of its eventual home.
