Lynx

The stealthy lynx which is rarely seen, their toes spread as they pad silently along the forest paths, their paws like acting like natural snowshoes in the winter.  The scene makes me think of summer or spring with the silver birch and dappled colouring as the lynx melts into its surroundings. There is no artist's credit on the card but I discovered this is the work of the textile designer Saara Kurkela of the company Villilla so one could decorate a home with this design  on cushions or curtains.  She calls the design Snow Lynx so perhaps I'm wrong about the season, always good to have a bit of mystery.

It would match with the wild stamps of Sunday Stamps...

Unusual colouring but it still catches the lynx's ability to make itself almost invisible. I've only seen them at our zoo but even there they aren't easy to get a glimpse of. The name of the artist and company point to Finland... Something about the cold colours but also with a little bit of warmth added says "early spring" to me (still some snow on the ground perhaps and yet the sun beginning to get stronger?)
