    Simplicity is sometimes better. I purchased this from a toy store, one of my first Papo toy purchases – it was Christmas and there weren’t many to chose from. A friend sculptor had told me what nice animals Papo made. I carefully looked them over and picked out a precious few putting back two before going to the cash register. As a child, I always liked the black panthers and leopards. I think this is really a black leopard as it has the spots, black on black paint, a stupendous detail! I was hesitant about the pose as for play it is limited. Like a plastic person always in a sit position. You really can’t do much with that can you? I put the leopard on my coffee table and as I lived with it, I have come to appreciate it as a little sculpture. It is very fine. The front dew claw on the front extended paw makes the paw like some metamophosizing hand. Not totally accurate but nice.

    I purchased the yellow leopard later because of my fondness for this piece, but the paint job was horrendous.

    I am a sculptor myself, and think that these little wonders are the cheapest, best animal sculptures you can buy. If you just want the pleasure of looking at them and don’t care what others think; don’t need a collector’s status symbol, this creature is for you. It is constantly stalking your coffee or book mark. It’s very animated.

    This is an excellent likeness of a black panther. It looks alert and stealthy. The eyes are very realistic. The body is muscular and strong and the pose is agile and watchful.

    This model of a panther is black, but in light the deep brown spots will shine through. This is a great addition to my collection.
