The leopard is a symbol meaning ferocity, valiance and courage. In African lore, the leopard is stealthy, shrewd, solitary and loyal only to its own cubs. Although it is the smallest of the big cats, it is an aggressive and speedy hunter and can run at speeds of up to 36 miles per hour.

About the artist:
The Improved Arts Metal Sculpture Project was started in 1986 by five brothers. Having discovered their artistic talents, they founded the group to depict African natural history through metalwork and to make a better living. Old tin cans and other scraps of metal from businesses in the industrial area of Harare are turned into these delightful sculptures by these artists using snips, pliers, and hammers.
