Enthusiastic, courageous and ambitions, the Tiger is a born leader.  

Displaying a sense of ease, the Tiger is confidently stretching and relaxed, completely content as the king of all animals. Taking on a sinuous and faceted form, the Tiger is covered in a textured iridescent material which throws different colourways depending on its angle. Bright, bold and fun, the Tiger represents happiness and being truly confident in ones own skin and stripes.

There are 8 Tigers being produced this year and located throughout the CBD, we encourage you to find them all.
