Tiger

A whimsical sculpture reflecting found object art, this piece features a navigational buoy adorned with a bronze tiger head and claw feet.

Placed within the children's area in Assumption Park, Tiger presents the dual nature of fun and fearlessness often reflected young children. The raging face of the tiger contrasts with the curved ball-shaped body and grounded with traditional claw feet from a piece of furniture.

Since the early twentieth century, artists have used ordinary materials or "found objects" in their artworks. The use of industrial and natural materials can provoke personal, as well as universal, associations for the viewer. Pablo Picasso's Cubist collages, Marcel Duchamp's "ready-mades," and Robert Rauschenberg's "combine" paintings represent this style.​
