Tasmanian Tiger, Thylacine pendant

24.00



So, full disclosure, I'm completely fascinated with Australian flora and fauna, from marsupials to monotremes to all the snakes, birds, creepy crawlies -- I could go on and on. Someday I want to be able to visit, but in the meantime, I did a design as a tribute to the extinct Thylacine. These animals were a large predatory marsupial, filling an ecological niche similar to the coyote in the US. Unfortunately it was believed they would harm sheep and domestic stock and they were hunted to extinction. You Tube has some archival footage of some of the last zoo kept specimens if you're curious!

This detailed alder wood pendant is ~4.5 inches wide. Please allow for a little variety in wood markings -- just like nature does. :)

Each piece arrives on one of my illustrated presentation cards.
