Do you remember the Hout Bay tigers mentioned in our July newsletter? They are now finally free of their Namibian “African Dream” granite and leave for the “jungle” this week after seven months of dedicated work by Robin Kutiniyu. Each block originally weighed about 5 tons, and now is about 2,5 tons. The tigers’ bodies were worked to a high polish, and their stripes etched in freehand afterwards, with tigers eye cabochons inserted in their faces to help them see. Their bases will be buried in the earth, so they will appear to be really stalking through the undergrowth in their new home. These are certainly exceptional pieces of work.
