ummm, a zebra sleeping on a mirror??? Or a zebra style pillow reflected in a mirror? A moth, a butterfly? I don't know, but it is very cool, no matter what it actually is!

zebra skin

I'm not sure, but it's a cool pattern. It's not a mirror because the two halves of the pattern aren't identical. It does look like some kind of furry animal skin.

I was almost sure I left a comment here. I came back to see the other guesses.
I think Zebra would be too easy.
I'm going to go with a goat's fur. Just don't know what part - snout, ear? :)

Lesa said...

Some kind of insect maybe-- a fuzzy catepillar?

Thanks for the MM visit!
