“The pearl of Sumatra” Limited edition fine art print
“The pearl of Sumatra has a faith as dark as its stripes.” Says Rigby artist and engraver, Geoffrey Lignon. “Critically facing extinction, this sub-species of tiger found in the Sundra Islands, where the Javan and Bali tigers are now extinct, or doomed by irresponsible human expansion, poaching and a lack of genetic variety. In a few years, possibly decades, the beauty of these creatures will only be witnessed through windows of the past. Sumatran tigers are one of the most beautiful animals on the planet and should be spared from human abuse and a lack of humility before we lose them forever.”
