FABULOUS Japanese images of tigers! Pls have a look! Won’t take a minute!

by

Hugh Paxton’s Blog is currently absorbed in researching the role of tigers in human culture as part of a soon to be published book on tiger conservation. I have just come across the following page. The text is fascinating (and amusing) but if you don’t have time to read it all at least check out the FABULOUS Japanese images of tigers! A real knockout!

Best!

    Glad you like it Stella! Chang (born on the day of the tiger) thought about these images and said “Twisted”. He then scrunched himself up. It was a bit disturbing! It wasn’t a spasm or a fit. He has the rather unusual gift of looking like an an animal or calling like a bird. It’s a sort of Chang thing. In this case he looked like one of the Japanese prints.. Then he was Chang again and after coffee he went off to fix a roof. Not a performance. Just I suppose a man with empathy and – he just gets it right. Birds, snakes, he knows how they think and move. If he thinks about it he might go back to Burma and become a shaman. Right now he is more useful working for me. and everything in this vicinity is safe. Chang is an animal lover. And they love him back.
