maneki tora - the lucky tiger (plastic prototype)

Early in the development phase of analogue to digital personality transfers scientists used different types of animals in their experiments. One particularly successful test involved tigers. Ever since little tigers in form of the test subject have been a cute giveaway symbolizing strength and good luck.

This is my new resin toy measuring 6.5 cm (2.5″) which will be released on Valentines Day / Chinese New Year.
