“There is no comparison between a wild tiger and one that you might have seen in the confines of a zoo. The whole character of the animal changes when it is in captivity, not in the least because he no longer has to fend for himself. Seeing a Bengal Tiger dragging a freshly killed Samba back into his habitat was an incredibly powerful and inspiring thing to witness.” (HM)
Like Rembrandt, Bugatti and Antoine-Louis Barye before him, Hamish has been inspired to depict the Tiger. His experience of studying Tigers in Bengal, instills each bronze Tiger sculpture with a realism and a spirit that only comes from seeing these magnificent Big Cats in the flesh.
Hamish’s bronze Tiger in Tree sculpture is available in limited edition. It shows a tiger lying along a branch of a tree, watching intently. Arranged in this typical pose, we are reminded how quietly and effectively tigers can hide their presence, one of the things that makes them such a formidable hunter.
