Tiger in lead coat

Assemblage, mixed media
6cm x 10cm

Tiger in lead coat was the product of a long process, the 30s tiger came from a charity shop and the lead from a field near Penzance. It , as it were,  fell together when I dropped the lead onto the floor and it seemed to acquire the shape it needed to be to fit over the tiger.

The animal looks a bit desperate maybe and the strong iron base that is still corroding chimes with the idea of disappearing truly wild habitat.
