Still Life With Kitten & Feathers


In my parents house there was a print of a puppy carrying a feather in his mouth, which my father had brought home from a museum excursion. This cat with feathers reminds me no end of that dog print. This picture was taken in the shadow of the Cathedral in Le Mans, France a few years ago. Meditation is an option when gazing as this kitten is gazing. I like the heart shape between her front legs... the heart of darkness... I wonder where the owner of the feathers is?

I am glad to have found your blog.

A friend of mine once told me he believed that a bird would give a gift of a feather if it felt the receiver was in some way special. Perhaps the bird feathers here were a gift for the kitten.

Peut-être le chat l'a-t-il mangé?....
