Buddha Cat
by Karen Fiorito

Inspiration/Story behind the piece:

This print is dedicated to the memory of a sentient being named Diego who took the form of a cat for a while before moving on to what I hope is a more enlightened state. This print is a type of Buddhist prayer in hopes that Diego might someday, in some lifetime, reach Nirvana
