This piece was carved during the busy spring nesting time and was
inspired by our rather cumbersome but beautiful cat Wilma and how she
would probably go about trying to catch a bird! The cat has it's head
stuck inside the nesting box trying to be invisible waiting for the
birds. On the rear side you will find the birds with barely a feather
missing, spying on the cat.
There are plenty of secrets to discover in this piece. Novak Djokovic
and Matteo Barrettini met in the Wimbledon final; Olympic gold
medallists are mentioned as the Olympics was underway as I carved and
Tokyo as the venue. 1538 is my bike lock combination and Fred and
Wilma are our cats. Eng v It refers to England being about to play
Italy in the Europeans final. England lost (unlike our birds!)..
