Title: 'The Hornbill that got away.' An impressive 3D old master painting inspired on Rubens fighting tigers and lions painting. A Siberian tiger ripped open a Victorian cage with marble crown. A pair of Wreathed Hornbills flew for their lives but only one got lucky. The other one is crushed under the giant claw of the beast. Instead of being satisfied by the meal this tiger is just focussed on the one that got away. It's a human story. 'The Hornbill that got away' part of the tier expo at MOA Museum. A work inspired by the paintings of The Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens The Hornbill on the metal base in the pictures is a optional separate artwork. Please inquire for details.
