Tigers in my Yard. Explanation.
There is a hug in the image that at first glance seems to be pleasant but is not. The tiger is not happy and his power is contained by the hug of the woman that more than love towards the animal is a selfish love. Her glance is a glance of property that at the same time awakes envy.
For Asian cultures, tiger is the king of the animals and is usually associated with water. I put the scene surrounded by a storm of water as an amplification of its power however is contained by the frames of the illustration. The flowers on the scene are decorative flowers that can be easily found in ordinary gardens. The bird cage makes reference to the cage where this mighty animals are confined.
Aesthetically I felt enchanted by woman and her figure and is something I have been exploring recently finding myself surprised by the power of the female figure. It has a touch of old Asian illustration.
