Cheetah is the world’s fastest creature. Ever since the days of the ancient Egyptians, cheetahs have held a place of honor. They were the favorite pets of elite families. Many noblemen gave cheetah cubs as gifts to various members of the royal family. The animal’s coloration and its association with royalty and the upper classes have morphed a peaceful Savannah creature into an emblem of status and power. The animal’s svelte body and sleek frame made it a popular subject in famous paintings. A very beautiful figurine will attract attention as an admirable interior article and will make an excellent individual gift.
