"... my Tiger Pelt Project. A knitted textile interpretation of tiger pelts based on the collection at the American Museum of Natural History and actual data of wild tigers being studied in the wild by scientists. Through studying actual pelts that were collected from 1944 onwards to live wild tigers captured by photographs, I hope to trace the history and stories behind these amazing tigers that are facing the threat of extinction today."
The pieces she had there were incredible, soft and beautiful, and it was almost painful to think of the insane people who would kill these magnificent animals just to have their "trophy'.
