“Tiger Man,” a life-sized humanimal, is sculpted in water-based clay. He is a collaborative work in the our signature style of classically inspired contemporary realism. Kristine sculpted the figure and the surface motifs were created by Colin. The design work creates a transition between the animal and human portions and adds a narrative quality to this newest addition to our Chimaera Series.
Inspired by heraldic imagery and paintings on the ceiling of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the designs start at Tiger Man's upper back with a face of a tiger. Various animals of prey, including boar, nilgai, antelope, ibis and other birds move in free flowing designs away from the tiger, spiraling over his upper arms and lower back.
At this stage, he is shown in the unfired clay version of himself. He has been successfully fired in the kiln and we will be putting the final surface patina coloration on soon. Please contact us for more images, information or details.
