Edward Kemeys was inspired by nature’s violence, and his sculptures often depicted the struggle to survive, as in Texan Bull Pulled Down by Jaguars. In Panther and Deer the deer’s wild eyes stare desperately as the panther bites into its neck. Both pieces vividly portray predators and their victims in the natural world and express the artist’s passion for hunting and adventure.
