Artist statement:

My project has been inspired from the citation from this book: “It is horrible to imagine the day without tracks of the Amur leopard’s round paw on the fresh snow. This animal seems most dainty and glamorous of the feline family…” I was very much excited with this fact. The world suggests a wild total population of the Amur leopard at maximum 30-35 species to have survived on our planet.
