Artist Statement : "In ancient times, as today, the cougar was revered as a speedy and cunning animal. As the cougar population increases it runs into problems with man, and man's urban population increase. Regarded as a hunter, it is to be respected. This cougar is caught in full flight as the grouse looks on. Overlooking this scene is a blue eagle moon. The beauty of the animal leaves man in full wonderment." - Robert Sebastian
