The Tiger signet has an enamel styled tiger on the front of the ring with matching black and orange stripes on the inside. With the word predator on the shoulders of the ring and two camouflaged tigers circling in the tall grass around the border of the ring. On the inside of the ring is hidden enamel tiger stripes of black and orange... for that extra element of surprise.
The ring comes in a sustainably sourced wooden box as well as the Serpent Cove treasure chest with all its Cove trinkets. Standard postage within Australia included, express and international postage available at an additional cost.
The tiger is a powerfully iconic beast of the Asian Continent. Its stripes stand out as they seem so strange and strikingly out of place, that is until it is in grass or moving through the forest and it simply disappears. It stalks its prey in camouflaged anticipation and is known to stalk and hunt large prey including us humans. Even in the modern world. There are tales of special forces in Vietnam getting attacked or the story of the tigress demon of Champawat who is said to have killed 436 people. With all our modernisation this beast still questions our position at the top of the food chain regularly.
The inspiration for this piece is visiting the circus as a child and seeing the tiger in the ring. It was incredibly sad but as a child I saw that in the Tigers eyes there was still a strength. It looked mean, angry, fierce and I felt it was just biding its time. Its wild animal spirit was unbreakable and I feel I can relate to that poor caged tiger. Also I'm spellbound by their amazing beauty and ability to appear and disappear within their environment using their striking stripes.
