I am still sharing photos from my trip to the zoo in Norfolk several weeks ago.  I discovered this rather lovely statue and was very interested in how it shone so brightly in the sun.  I couldn't quite capture the effect in these photos but it absolutely glistened.  I tried to find some information about it on line but had no luck.  I would love to know the material that was used to make it shine and also find out who created it.  The whole effect was very effective, it was beautiful!

As the tigers were being a little shy, I didn't see them and consequently took no photos of the live kind, I took shots of the statue instead, which was at the entrance of the Asia Trail at the Virginia Zoo of Norfolk.


Thank you Misty for hosting Camera Critters.  I always look forward to it each Saturday.

At first glance, the statue looks quite life like!

Hello Denise
That lovely big tiger reminds me of some we saw in the Tiger Balm Gardens (staues that is not live ones) many years ago when we lived in Singapore - 1960s!
Are you anywhere near the storms that are approaching the east coast and going to be a bit of a nuisance
Take care

The statue is impressive. It captures the tiger's stealth.
