Mid Century Large Optic Cat in Lucite by Abraham Palatnik


Mid Century Optic Cat in Clear Lucite by Abraham Palatnik, Brazil. A world famous design by this famous Artist. The clear French Lucite is curve moulded in 2 halves, with the double dimension cat made of dots and lines, is moulded to the centre. This results in an optical illusion that creates a 3 dimensional cat view that also “moves” as your vision crosses the Lucite curves. This is the largest of the 4 designs that were made, with the cat either sitting or standing. Sticker residue to the base that was marked MADE IN BRAZIL. Authenticity guaranteed. Dimensions are approx.: 20.5cm high x 12cm wide x 4cm deep (varies). Brazil. Circa 1960.
