Edward Gorey “Dangling Cat” Necklace

This “Dangling Cat” pendant is adapted in low relief from an original drawing by Edward Gorey (1925-2000) on the cover of his book, Amphigory. His initials are on the back. 

A truly unique figure in American art and illustration, Gorey’s carefully executed drawings depict a mythical world in a style that is instantly recognizable. “Dangling Cat” is a wonderful example of his whimsical drawings about various improbable activities of cats – appealing to cat lovers as well as to lovers of the charmingly absurd.

History

Animals in the Opera

From Aida to Carmen, from Die Zauberflöte to the Ring cycle—animals both real and mythological have been seen on the operatic stage for centuries.

Horses, donkeys, bears, elephants, birds, dragons, and many others are featured as minor, and sometimes major, characters in operas performed all over the world. In the Met’s first season at Lincoln Center in 1966–67, goats and a camel were seen in the world premiere of Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra.

More recently, horses have graced the stage in La Fanciulla del West, among others, a mule appeared in Pagliacci, and a pair of Irish Wolfhounds starred in Lucia di Lammermoor. Audience favorite Sir Gabriel the Donkey has had recurring roles in Il Barbiere di Siviglia and La Bohème.
