Exceptional gallery-quality wild cat sculpture designed and crafted by Licio Zanetti for Zanetti Murano, c.1990. It is a very large piece - about the same size as a small domestic cat.
It comprises one solid piece of rauschtopaz glass that has been sculpted by hand when still hot and pliable - or massello glass - and then deftly carved into an abstract panther shape using large panel cuts.
It is signed 'Zanetti Licio' in full to the underside. Zanetti only gave his full signature to works he considered masterpieces, with all other works being signed 'Zanetti L.'
