From the smile on its face to the butterfly resting on its tail, this happy cat brings warmth and joy. This kitty's face and chest are adorned with mother of pearl capiz shell. The artist then hand-painted flowers on top of the shell. The floral theme continues on the lower half of the body, both in being painted on and being pressed into the tin. The contrasting pearl and green ensure this piece fits in nearly any decor style.
The basic frame of the cat is created using tin, which is powder-coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin wire along the inner edge. Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz come through as tans and browns underneath the paint. The shell is then painted the bold colors you see. The entire front facing piece is carefully hand-painted.
