Cat Art Series – Legend of the Siamese

Cats of Karavella Collection featuring the Legend of the Siamese, Cat Art by Dora Hathazi Mendes.

Once upon a time, an Eastern princess of Siam went to her daily bath to a lake. As usual, she was accompanied by her favourite cat, a Siamese. Because she was worrying for losing her ring, she placed it into the tail of the cat. The cat bended his tail for preventing the ring to fall off, and gradually over the years the tail of the Siamese Cat became with a permanent kink.

By the tale the Siamese cats were highly appreciated for their kinked tail, but today considered as a fault of the breed. On my whimsical painting I used freely the attributes of the Siamese, because one of their uniqueness is the sky blue eyes, and point coloration. Other eye colours are more typical for Orient Cats which breed practically have Siamese body and soul with different fur pattern and eye colour. My siamese cats have yellow eyes, green striped fur, golden dotted tails, and they are sitting graciously front of red background, and surrounded by a hand painted frame in Art Deco style.
