Comments: The Mother Lynx assumes a protective stance over her young. As the lynx struggles to perpetuate its species, the birth of a kitten is a very special occasion. The survival of that kitten to adulthood is even more of a challenge, and this lynx mother is determined to meet that challenge. Assuming a protective stance over her young, she is going to do whatever it takes to insure its survival. The next generation is this Lynx Mother’s legacy. This life-size version of the smaller “Lynx Legacy” was commissioned for The Shops at Walnut Creek Shopping Center in Westminster, Colorado.
