Delicately suspended from the ceiling of the gallery room, what Visual News online magazine calls the 'Massive Handmade Cloud Leopard Paper Cut Sculpture' looks ready to pounce on anyone who so much as dares to breathe in its general direction.

This impressive cutout creation features intensely intricate detailing that the artist, Nahoko Kojima of Solo Kojima, worked on while it was hanging in the air on location. Big, dark and intimidating, the sculpture incorporates traditional design elements with painstaking details such as skeletal silhouettes and wispy tendrils that are extremely thin and delicate.

Light as air, the Cloud Leopard cutout paper sculpture installation is frighteningly sublime in its provocative beauty that also seems tragically fragile.
