Monday Mural - Tiger, Tiger on the Wall


TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry

(first verse of William Blake's (1757-1827) "Tiger" poem)

It seems I'm following with the zoo theme from my last post with this giant tiger mural that 
I found on one of my visits to Fremantle, when my parents visited in December.

Located on a wall at 20 Elder Place, Fremantle and painted by Australian muralist Sazar
for Public2015.

  7. It has a bit strange expression with those green eyes looking right in your face.

    1. I agree that the fluorescent green eyes are a bit disturbing. Thanks Marianne.

  8. Fierce and vibrating. Also like the Georgia O'Keefe mountains in the background. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

    1. Yes, that's the one! They bought it about 12 years ago and I know it's now valued at over 1 million. Lucky them!!

  10. That's beautiful. It's a fine example of how warm colors advance and cool ones recede. The animal looks like he's ready to pounce right off the wall!
