Description

Original Dolan Geiman animated NFT of the Nightcat Pawn, a bobcat shown in a theatrical mountain backdrop. This NFT brings a unique western wildlife nouveau flavor to the digital collectible arena. The Nightcat Pawn represents 1 of 32 collectible characters modeled after the pieces on a chess board. One of a select number of animated pawns in the CryptoMuun Collection.

MYTHOLOGY:“Look there, Ramsay! Put down your pitchfork. ‘Tis but a mountain cat, a nightcat, run here escaped from some craggy cave in the mountains. But lo, is this some dream? The beast is one, in form, but look! As it stops and blinks, it releases some multitude of colorful spirits, skywards, as if some flower, de-petaled, did catch upon an upsweep of wind.”

POWER: When you own the Nightcat Pawn, you harness the power of transformation and metamorphosis. You harness the power to fit into any group and resonate there as if you were born there. A true mystic, you also harness the power to grow ancient beauty in black resin strongholds.

COLLECTIVE POWER: When you own the entire set of CryptoMuun Pawns, you will harness the power to block all black resin and black feather, and will gain the ability to mine CryptoMuun silver.

The Process

Inspiration for my CryptoMuun NFT Collection comes from such myriad sources as ancient Egypt, iconic figures (human and otherwise) of the American West, and mythology. It’s a culmination of a lot of the other work that I create, but creating these characters in digital form gives me the opportunity to do something completely new to me. And what makes it new? Aside from the fact that these artworks will be digital, most of the NFTs are also animated! The animations will be fairly subtle but these are things I cannot do in the physical art world, and so the world of NFTs is affording me an exciting opportunity to venture into new creative territory.
