King Arthur’s Cat.


Canadian artist Jeff de Boer fashions ultra-finely crafted fantasy cat-and-mouse battle gear as a form of art, like this 2008 piece, Tournament Cat, above, created from nickel, aluminum, leather, brass, and wood.

In essence, the works seem to re-imagine the conflicts enjoined by knights and samurai as played out, instead, between felines and rodents. Like, if Tom had worn this one, above, against Jerry, or Scratchy against Itchy. History could have been different.

Imagine that on a tiger or lion…think He-Man’s Battle Cat.
