Wild Cat Strike - Tigers by Pollyanna Pickering
  Wild Cat Strike  (2009)
Subject: Tigers
Dimensions (inches): 26 x 26
Medium: Gouache on canvas
Description: This incredibly dramatic painting was inspired by Pollyanna's journeys into India, where she worked with the Project Tiger rangers. Pollyanna's working safari into India in 2001 was a huge adventure - and included the closest encounter with a big cat she has yet experienced.
An arduous journey via night trains and accidental hitch hiking took Pollyanna to the Corbett's National Park, in the foothills of the Himalayas. Here she stayed in primitive conditions in a rangers lodge within the National Park, and was able to travel on elephant, allowing her to penetrate much deeper into the reserve than is possible by jeep. She was jolted, rattled, scratched, cut bruised and bitten - and even charged by a wild tiger. 'I have had one or two scary moments while travelling to paint endangered wildlife' Pollyanna said on her return, 'but I have never experienced fear like looking into the eyes of a snarling spitting wild tiger from a distance of four feet'.
This close encounter with the tiger left her shaken, but more determined than ever that this magnificent cat must not be allowed to become extinct in the wild and helped inspire the painting of a conflict between two tigers.
Pollyanna's charitable foundation has been very active in Tiger Conservation since it's inception. The very first fund raising appeal and exhibition in 2001 raised over 5,500.00 to buy equipment for Project Tiger, and has also provided slides and educational materials for their programme of talks and school visits in India.
