Catalogue Entry

In May of 1981, Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Cooper donated The Roaring Tiger to the Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre museum.  With the exception of a few small components, The Roaring Tiger is a three-dimensional painting constructed out of natural feathers. Every texture produces subtle stylistic details by each type of feather. The Roaring Tiger is bold and captivating, inspiring awe and fear to its viewers. Take a close look at the fine details in order to appreciate the master craftsmanship. 


In Chinese culture, the tiger signifies an array of meanings. Historically, tigers have been recognized as symbols of fear, power, harmony and wonder. When presented in the home, the tiger protects against thieves and evil spirits.


1981年5月,Lloyd Cooper夫婦將《咆哮的老虎》捐贈給卡程中華文化中心博物館。《咆哮的老虎》是一幅由天然羽毛構成的三維畫作。每條紋理都通過每種羽毛而產生不同的風格細節。咆哮中的老虎大膽而迷人,令觀看者心生敬畏和恐懼。若然細心品鑑,自然能發掘其精湛的工藝。


在中國文化中,老虎象徵著各種不同的含義。歷史上,老虎被認為是恐懼、力量、和諧,和奇蹟的象徵。將老虎的雕像或畫像放在家裏時,老虎有可以防止小偷和阻擋邪靈的功用。
