During the painting in progress within several years suddenly appeared a figure which obviously was a tiger and the artist remembered 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


This large oil on canvas is painted with many thin layers of fine oil colours which give the painting a transparent view of depth and brightness.
