The Fighting "Bengal Tiger" by Glenn Gore is Produced in Black & White Scratchboard, the Art of engraving fine lines into a special plaster finished art board. Lifelike images are formed out of literally thousands of etched lines. Each tone in the Tiger is determined by the amount of lines in each detailed area of an Etching. Each hair of the Tiger is etched into the art board to form a dynamic image.
The etching was drawn to represent the "Fighting Spirit" of the Bengal Tiger and was produced from sketches made of the real Mike the Tiger III mascot at Louisiana State University in 1973.
The original etching hangs in the LSU Alumni Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana
and was used by the Alumni Association to represent the "Fighting Spirit of LSU". The original hangs next to the painting "Last Flight of the Spirit of LSU" also produced by Glenn Gore.
The print is 24"x20" and is signed by artist Glenn Gore from a printing of 500 prints.
A Signed and Number Edition was made, but prints are not available for sale
except only as a matching print in a set with the "Last Flight of the Spirit of LSU"
