My husband has just had a fit, but I'm dazzled by my newest Exnar animals. ;D

2 large butt-faced cats, one bird with cataracts and 2 bulgy-eyed fish.  Tee hee!

Anik,

They do make a statement, don't they?  The fish look almost slavishly realistic next to the cat.  I can see the attraction in them, even although I'm not quite dripping with jealousy. Just tell your husband, "Whatever makes me happy." And they're easy to clean up after.

Oh, but you are dripping with jealousy, David.  You just don't realise it.

They are FANTASTICALLY FABULOUS...

Thank you Sue and JP.

Though my snail isn't in the Beranek catalogue, some of my birds, fish and cats are... Beranek Catalogue   There are also lovely whimsical flowers a couple of pages over.

There are so many Exnar 'sculptures' to collect.  Unfortunately, I've got a very hard time coming across them -- they seem so few and far between.
