Sculpture constructed from card of the famous Madagascan ring-tailed lemur. I was inspired to create a sculpture of this animal due to its distinctive long, black and white ringed tail. Furthermore, I sourced an image of a lemur with its tail arched upwards which I mirrored in my sculpture to give it a sense of urgency and an almost waiting stance, like it could leap towards you at any given moment. I also brought in a natural device, the branch, to give the sculpture an organic element.
