Cat is an intarsia, wood inlay sculpture by David Penosky. The art measures 9 1/2″ x 19″.
Intarsia is an early Italian Art form of wood inlay. The term is specifically applied to a type of inlaying probably developed in Siena, Italy, in the 13th century and derived from Middle Eastern inlays of ivory upon wood. This art found its richest expression during the Renaissance in Italy (c. 1400–1600).
