Rarrrrrr! Voila, le tigre!
Blue Biro tattoo drawing on my tiger sculpture is coming on. As mentioned in my previous post Tiger Sculpture Tattoo…Work in Progress, this is the hardest surface I have drawn on to date as the clay sculpture has been painted to replicate ancient sculptures and icons. Therefore the surface is not smooth and more difficult to achieve fine detail.
The layers of images are starting to appear within the blue Biro drawing. Over the body of the Hindu god a roaring tiger’s face is emerging like a graphic t-shirt!
This piece celebrates the beauty of tigers, one of the most iconic animals on earth, their survival for over 1.8 million years longer than humans who’s existence is relatively short in comparison and our cultural heritage of representing tigers through art.
Much to do!
