This sculpture is a classical treatment of the animalistic theme portrayed with a subtle jewelry nuance. Here the movement and expression remain in the background so that the adorning surface stands out. The animal was sculpted with precision and softness and was finished off stamping every single hair. The sculpture was gilded using the old technique of mercury gilding. 23 carat gold was thickly layered on the light areas of the leopard’s body. The dark spots were carefully outlined and oxidized. This has created a truly realistic effect with mild stylization. The concept of the work is contemplation of the beautiful animal, a masterpiece of nature in itself. Some of the details that impress with their delicacy are the teeth, the jaw and the tongue of the animal, made of white bone and black buffalo horn. The work is in its own way unique.

Krasimir Krastev-Lomski is an established Bulgarian sculptor in the field of small sculpture. He has graduated from the National Academy of Art in Sofia, Bulgaria, with a major in sculpture and subsequently acquired his hands-on experience in the studio of the famous Bulgarian sculptor Georgi Chapkanov-Chapa. Krastev works in the field of small sculpture with care to the fine, jewelry-like details and his works are a unique interpretation of the traditional realistic sculptures of the old masters. His sculptures predominantly evoke a fantasy feel, characteristic of fantasy realism, but at the same time contain a reference to antiquity. The sculptor’s works are figurative with a distinctive inclination to realism. They emanate the feeling of a living being from flesh and blood, sculpted elegantly and with great precision. A great part of Krasimir’s works are based on images inspired by the Antiquity. Some of them are Zeus, disguised as a bull ridden by the young and frightened Europa, the devilish Satyr playing his double flute, called “dvoyanka”, carried away in a magical dance, which lures the beautiful Bacchante to follow him, spellbound by his music. Another preferred topic embodied in the sculptor’s work is the animalistic one. Like his predecessors in the field of sculpture art, Krasimir does not just seek a realistic representation of the wolf, bull or the leopard, but rather reincarnates the image of the totem animal. The animal images he creates are not stiff and static, they carry the free spirit dynamics and energy of the wilderness. Krasimir is the author of the first in the world monument of the rock legend Ronnie James Dio, erected in the Bulgarian town of Kavarna. He has also completed a number of socially important projects. Krasimir Krastev’s works require within 4 to 8 weeks to make. Every piece of his fine sculptures goes through several stages of creation – modelling, casting in metal and refining. A distinguishing feature of a great part of his hand made sculptures is their jewelry like quality, and every single one of them is created with great care to detail. The sculptor does not compromise with the quality of his work, and many of his creations are in the collections of art lovers around the world.
