Sphinx – this word has magic, it causes associations. These are the pyramids, sands, mysticism of ancient Egypt. But what is a sphynx cat? This is also magic, but real, consisting of flesh and blood. This is a cat figurine. These are soft lines of the body, the magic of harmony, the look of green eyes right in the heart. This is not a cat, this is poetry.
