Otis’s favorite sculptures were cats, but she also created horses and bulls. She generally worked almost every night, sitting at a large parlor table covered with different molds, a pot of wheat paste, and paper strips from Chinese or Bengali newspapers. Otis would glue different newspaper strips to a finished sculpture, giving it a collage-like appearance.
