(stamp size 2.25" x 3.25")
The Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is a subspecies of tiger found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Recent genetic testing has revealed the presence of unique genetic markers, which isolate Sumatran tigers from all mainland subspecies. Currently, there are only 100-400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild.
Originally carved as a layered stamp, this beautiful tiger lives in a traditional box planted in Staatsburg, New York, by my friends 3 Blind Mice. It was inspired by a photo I took at our local Pt. Defiance Zoo.
