Answer
Chris,

This work is titled "A lioness devouring a bird; lying down with her head to left. c.1638-1642" by Rembrandt. What you have is unfortunately a reproduction with only decorative value. The original is a charcoal sketch that currently resides at the British Museum. Here is a link for more information: http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/publications/online_research_catalogues/se
