Striding forwards with one paw raised and snarling to show his sharp teeth, naturalistically carved with a tiger’s ruff but without stripes.

Provenance: Footnote: It is unusual to find a tiger of this size and in this pose in wood so it is entirely possible that the present example was carved as a foundry model or ‘pattern’ for the production of similar tigers in bronze.
