Siberian Tiger

 

The Siberian tiger or Amur tiger is a population of the tiger subspecies Panthera tigris tigris native to the Russian Far East, Northeast China and possibly North Korea. It once ranged throughout the Korean Peninsula, northern China and eastern Mongolia. This is my fifth tiger, and fourth Siberian, made to commemorate 2022, the Year of the Water Tiger. (White Tiger, Siberian Tiger in the Snow 1.0, Siberian Tiger in the Snow 2.0, Tiger and Magpie)

calla lily

 

Zantedeschia is a genus of eight species of herbaceous, perennial, flowering plants in the family Araceae, native to southern Africa from South Africa north to Malawi. Common names include arum lily for Z. aethiopica and calla and calla lily for Z. elliottiana and Z. rehmannii, although members of the genus are neither true lilies of Liliaceae, true Arums, nor true Callas (related genera in Araceae). The colourful flowers and leaves of both species and cultivars are greatly valued and commonly grown as ornamental plants.
