Tiger Trail 2022
The ‘Tiger’, a cultural & spiritual icon from time immemorial is referenced as the largest wild cat.
Over hunted, this critically endangered animal needs protection.
In year 2022 , the world’s attention focuses on the Tiger as it is the Year of the Tiger in the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
This inevitably would be the most appropriate time to bring attention to the Blue or Maltese Tiger from Fujian Province which is near extinction.
“XingXing” is painted in celebration with 2022 stars.
This nocturnal animal brings in light in darkness with its arrival, creating an awareness with its presence.
“ As an apex predator, the tiger plays a crucial role in maintaining balance in their ecosystems. But with the constant threat illegal poaching and the quality of their natural habitats under pressure by human development, tiger numbers have dwindled from 100,000 a century ago to below 4000 to date.
The urgency to protect this species is vitally important as they sit on the brink of extinction.”
