Tiger in the Wind Carpet
Handknotted wool tiger print carpet. Tigers are a symbol of strength and courage in the Tibetan world view and Tiger mats, a show of power. Tibetans were Buddhists, and soon, actual Tiger skins were replaced by the vegetarian version, carpets. This gave room for play and abstraction on the stripes, a trend that we have pushed further.
