Cat Sculpture by Grayson Perry

This is a photograph of Grayson Perry’s sculpture of a cat which he has uploaded to Twitter hours ago. I have no idea what it signifies if anything. It is grand and important. There appears to be a very large Asian influence. It is easy to see a Thai temple cat influence and the Burmese and Indonesian temple cats are very similar too. I liken the ornate lumps on the ‘skin’ to barnacles on a boat! Not sure if that is an appropriate description.
