This large oil on canvas with references to abstract expressionism and strong figurative elements is inspired by a famous limerick:
„There was a young lady of Niger
Who smiled as she rode on a tiger
They returned from the ride
With the lady inside
And the smile on the face of the tiger"
In a certain sense the limerick is highly actual: are we all riding on a tiger?
By ignoring the continuing climate-change catastrophes, could Mankind eventually also be devoured?
The painting is dated and signed on the front and additionally titled, dated and signed on the back.
