This Hansa Anatolian Leopard soft sculptured plush is a true work of art. Each Hansa animal is hand crafted with details hand painted or air brushed. You can see the amazing detail in this leopard. Soft custom plush covers his body, and he looks like he is ready to pounce. Significant research goes into reproducing every animal species. The fabric for the spotted and striped plush stuffed animals is custom designed and exclusively manufactured in small quantities to Hansa’s exacting specifications. Their “coats” are meticulously hand-cut and trimmed, never stamped out by machine. Hand sewn leather paws, swishing tails and especially soulful eyes and faces are lovingly detailed to give each stuffed animal its lifelike look.
