Subject: Tigers Dimensions (inches): 36 x 40 Medium: Gouache on canvas Description: In January 2010 Pollyanna braved temperatures as low as -29º, journeying to the rarely visited extreme North East corner of China in search of wild Amur Tigers on the Russian Borderlands. Fewer than 20 of the tigers exist in the wild in China, and despite spending days in the region, the tigers proved elusive. However Pollyanna was able to sketch the tigers in a breeding and conservation centre established to create a pool of Amur tigers with a pure genetic bloodline, with the eventual aim of re-introducing the cats into this remote mountainous region which they once roamed in large numbers.
