THE STORY

Dedicated to the majestic Siberian tiger of Ussuriland this Russian fantasy was inspired by images of Bengal tigers bathing in forest pools, overlooked by the ruined palaces of Ranthambore. Amba, the Udege name for Siberian Tiger meaning Guardian of the Forest, is depicted sweeping through the pine trees and layered over an antique dacha birdcage. A Red Army cavalry breaking out of the forest heralds the historic circumstances that contributed to this tiger species’ decline.

This beautiful mug features a wrapped mirror image of Shh, it's a Tiger! drawing, creating an abstract tangle of patterns in the centre of the design, giving a magical impression of the tigers dense forest habitat. The interior depicts the tiger from original Biro drawing Bang! who looks directly into the eyes of the mug user each time they drink from the mug! On the handle is a small image of a ghostly tiger and Udege woman walking side by side. This creates an optical illusion when the mug is viewed from a distance as the couple appear to be walking out of the forest.
