The technique used is picassiette (broken dishes) - good for sculpture because you can take advantage of the curved dish going around the curve of the piece. I used a blue and white willow plate in the nose area so that the pagoda protrudes up into the the cat's forehead. For the inside of the ears I used a plate with a design of herbs, and lined up the gold rim of the plate with the edge of the ears. It weighs about 7 pounds, so you will want to hang it from a sturdy wall or tree. It is 16 inches tall at the ears, 13 inches across, and a bit over 3 inches in depth. It would be perfect for an Alice in Wonderland English garden.
Shipping costs may be less, in which case I will issue a refund, but will not be more.
