Lǎohǔ in the Chinese language, held in reverence by the Chinese people the tiger has great symbolism in the Chinese culture. Traditionally it is a symbol of luck. In the Yin-and-Yang philosophy, it is considered the embodiment of “yang”, positive energy symbolizing Power, Energy, Royalty, Protection, Generosity, Illumination, and Unpredictability.
Our depiction of the tiger pays homage to not only the largest member of the feline (cat) family but arguably it is the most beautiful. Without a doubt, it is the most colorful and regal. Having become extinct in most of its natural habitat the few that are left are listed as endangered.
The tiger is a wall hanging was inspired by the many tattoo designs available. This piece measures that that measures approximately 13 inches wide by 18 inches tall. Cut from 12 gauge steel. We use a thicker steel, approximately 1/8 inch, than our competitors. We feel this provides a more substantial piece with more eye appeal. It is then prepped and painted with automotive grade primer, paint and finished with an automotive grade clear coat. Paints are UV protected. These pieces are handcrafted and hand-painted so no two will be the same color combination or paint design.
We do not carry a large inventory. We cater to you our Customer, for this reason, we usually cut orders as we receive them. In this way, if you require the piece to be modified (color, special hangers, etc) then we can accommodate your needs, usually without extra charges. As a rule, the only extra charge we will make will be for larger sizes…This requires us to put a fifteen day shipping time on the piece. Most of the time we ship sooner rather than later.
Unless requested by a Customer we do not use clip art or purchased designs. Like our other designs, this is an in-house Copyrighted© design. This is an heirloom quality piece that will be appreciated for generations to come.
Note: This is not a toy. Although we make every effort to make each piece as safe as possible, due to the design there will most likely be sharp edges and sharp points.
