Many of us lovingly admire the big cats from a distance and enjoy recreating their image in cross stitch pictures. Schools will often choose a tiger, a leopard, a jaguar, a panther, or one of the big cats as their mascots. I suspect that has to do with how fierce or fast the actual animal is in the wild. In sports, we want the image of a worthy adversary presented to our competitors.
Aside from sports, the big cats have gorgeous fur. Humans equate that fur with warmth or luxury. It is a natural survival instinct to desire protective “skin” and fur. Even if we can’t consciously identify the reason behind the attraction, we are admire the animal.
Snow Leopard Cross Stitch Kit
One of my personal favorite is a big cat that I can only see when visiting the zoo. The Snow Leopard is only indigenous to mountainous areas in Asia. Even though the snow leopard is carnivorous, the do not attack humans. Perhaps that is the main reason I adore this big cat. It would be no more dangerous to me than a large breed domestic dog. Therefore, I don’t fear a snow leopard.
The Snow Leopard would be a delight to cross stitch and hang in my home. The kit is available in either counted cross stitch (white) or stamped cross stitch. Both kits include fabric, thread, needles and the instructions to stitch this lovely picture.
