This Artwork of the Week (or of the year rather) just arrests. And as I type this on my faux tiger skin bedspread, admiring the print of a magnificent Bengal Tiger that shall soon adorn that empty spot of wall above my bed, I am reminded of a childhood dream. A dream of how someday I would in fact, rear a tiger of my very own.
But I now realise how selfish a dream that was. We live in a time where the Bali, Javan and Persian tiger species are already extinct; The rest that remain are sadly endangered.
I now have a new dream: A dream to see these striped felines I adore so much, survive the generations of time. A dying world, as many choose to see our Earth as, just cannot afford to be sans tigers. It just can't.
Please do leave comments on what you think of this majestic photograph, and what it does for you.
