Details

If you've ever visited the Colosseum in Rome, you've noticed the 200 stealthy cats that call the ancient landmark home. Locals known as gattare--Italian for "cat ladies"--feed and care for these unofficial mascots, which are protected under Italian law. Artisans at a family-run foundry in Rome create this whimsical Colosseum cat sculpture in patinated brass using lost-wax casting methods.
