"Cat Under the Bridge" is a miniature bronze animal sculpture with a black brown patina. The cat seems to have been suddenly discovered and looks very surprised. It is very life-like, yet as in all of Bornstein's work, it is not overly detailed. This very small sculpture can be placed on a table, desk or shelf, or in a niche.
The Brooklyn, New York, artist notes: "I fed the cat and his brethren after discovering them—the only fair thing to do after making a sculpture of him. While he has since passed away, I regularly feed the others—and participate in “TNR” (trap neuter return for feral cats in our area)".
