We recently came across these stunning hand crafted wild cat figurines. They are made by a Canadian artist and have exceptional detail and accurate characteristics. He has clearly done his research!
Today we are featuring his four Lynx figurines. There are four types of Lynxes that are closely related to each other – two occur on the North American continent and two occur on the European-Asian continent:
- Canada Lynx – distribution Canada – up to 17 kgs
- Bobcat – distribution Canada and USA – up to 13 kgs
- Eurasian Lynx – Europe and Asia – up to 29 kgs.
- Iberian Lynx – Europe (Spain and Portugal) – up to 14 kgs
All lynxes have tufted ears and short tails and as you can see they can look quite similar. But there are certain characters that distinguish them and the artist has done a great job of identifying these.
Both the Bobcat and the Eurasian Lynx are widespread on their respective continents and there are coat color variations across their range, as well as seasonal color changes. Appropriately the artist has created these two cats in multiple versions with different coat patterns. I would be tempted to collect them all!
He has also made the cats to scale, so within the four Lynxes the Eurasian Lynx is the largest, followed by the Canada Lynx and then the two smaller cats – the Iberian Lynx and the Bobcat. The actual sizes of the figurines are indicated in his product images.
