Riddle of the Sphinx

This little carved granite cat head is a bit smaller than a baseball. It has a sort of sphinx-like Egyptian character, I think, but it's another mysterious Goodwill treasure of unknown origin.

Found this whimsical, dreamlike ceramic mask at a consignment store the other night while waiting for Rog to get off work. It is signed "Sara Morris, 1987." I did a Google search and found a ceramic artist who does lovely animal-themed work in clay, named Sara Morris Swetcharnik. I sent her this photo and asked if it was one of her older pieces, but no. Still a mystery.
