Jason Napier created this sculpture, titled Precious Cargo, of a large cat carrying one of her kittens.  It was donated in 2001 in memory of Corinne Miles by Jackie and Jerry Miles.

2013-10-05-DSC00484-cropped-mediumI had tried photographing this sculpture on at least three other occasions but, whether shooting at night or during the day, I kept getting an unacceptable amount of glare from the surface of the sculpture, which is polished and shiny.  The color of the stone is really quite beautiful;  I didn’t want to settle for a shot that had a lot of glare in it.  I finally employed some lighting techniques which made it possible to get this shot with minimal glare.
