'Machli', Back View black Biro on found Ceramic Midwinter Fawn Figurine

A restful fawn dreams of being hunted by the great tigress Machli. Inspired by photographs taken of the television screen while ‘Natural World: Queen of Tigers’ BBC 2012/13, Mike Birkhead Associates played. Machli, the most famous tiger in the world was the pride of Ranthambore National Park, India. Her life was documented from cub to old age in two beautiful and moving films. This piece represents the natural cycle of life and death in the animal world. It also highlights how vital indigenous prey species are for wild tigers. Tigers are threatened by wildlife crime but also by habitat loss leading to loss of prey species.
