Knitted Tiger Pelts

Australian fibre artist Ruth Marshall knits the intricate patterns found on big wild cats! She’s currently in residence at the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC:

I am delighted to be a part of the Open Studios at the Museum of Arts and Design. I am using this opportunity to launch my Tiger Pelt Project. A knitted textile interpretation of tiger pelts based on the collection at the American Museum of Natural History and actual data of wild tigers being studied in the wild by scientists. Through studying actual pelts that were collected from 1944 onwards to live wild tigers captured by photographs, I hope to trace the history and stories behind these amazing tigers that are facing the threat of extinction today.”
