TIGER IN NEED by Andrew Pok Chong Boon

RM599.00

DESIGN IDEA & CONCEPT
This little tiger figurine is deliberately left bare to suggest they live in a condition that is constantly being deprived by human development. The body is partially wrapped in bandage to suggest a sense of wounded, and attention, care, help and protection are needed for the tiger. The piece attempted to launch an appeal to help preserving and protecting this endangered species.
