Cat features original fantasy art by artist, Jim Shore. The artists at Ne'Qwa Art have reverse hand painted the cat art, of a white cat on a blue background in the Jim Shore signature quilt design, on the inside of the mouth blown glass ornament. Introduced in 2009, now retired, it measures 6.5 inches tall, is in the brilliant shape and comes beautifully packaged in a hand crafted, satin lined, velour presentation case that includes the Certificate of Authenticity. The gift box is then enclosed in the Ne'Qwa Art signature protective box.
NeQwa Art is the largest producer of the centuries old tradition of painting on the inside of glass. The same meticulous techniques that captivated emperors and art connoisseurs ages ago are used to create each of their decorative accessories. From outlining to shading to color application, all work is painstakingly done in freehand. Known in the Mandarin language as Ne'Qwa, the artistic tradition of reverse painting on the inside of glass flourished during the 17th century, when snuff bottles were valued fashion accessories in China.
