The Bengal tiger, one of the largest cats of all, is one of the most impressive predators in the world. Its power and grace command reverence and respect and it is symbolized in myths and fables the world over. Unfortunately, despite having one of the highest tiger populations, the Bengal tiger is now exceedingly rare in the wild because its numbers are increasingly threatened by decreasing habitat, hunters, and poachers. At best, it is estimated that there are 4000 Bengal tigers living in their natural habitat. Inspired by the tiger’s majestic size, Gary Stinton wanted to create an artwork depicting its sheer physical power. He feels that humans have a natural affinity with tigers; their eyes are positioned on the front of their face and they have an innate ability to run and track down prey over long distances. For Stinton, both humans and tigers are thus intelligent creatures with incredible endurance. In depicting the Bengal tiger, Gary Stinton hopes that this image will, in some way, provide a lasting legacy of an increasingly rare and endangered beautiful creature.
