Bengal Tiger - Sophie
Pyrography and woodcut on cabinet-grade Apple plywood.
96 in x 48 in x 1.25 in (244 cm x 122 cm x 3.175 cm)
This full scale portrait of a female bengal tiger has been meticulously crafted at the hand of artist Alex Kuhn. The image is created through burning the wood with a soldering iron and carving away layers using different sizes of wood chisels. Additionally, various marbled burn marks have been created using techniques of both propane and butane torches.
This piece is mounted on a custom fabricated "royal-purple" painted steel frame and is prepped for hanging by cleat or wire.
