Cats As Art

While I was preparing the story on Japans Cat man, I came across this. I couldn’t look away and wasn’t sure if it was a little creepy or LOL funny. Either way the longer I looked the more I liked it. Where else but Japan.

This very realistic, like the eyes are following you realistic, giant cat head mask was on display at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. The mask is the creation of art teacher Housetu Sato and his students who sewed the Tabby Cat head out of wool felt. While I am sure there will be a few people wanting to purchase it he doesn’t have plans to sell his creation….yet. Instead his lucky students got to pose with it in these fun photos.
