Each tile represents one of these beautiful animal species in Delft Blue, together they form a unique collection.

The Extinct Animals: Golden Tiger

Golden Tigers were rumoured to live on every continent ages ago. This friendly, but socially awkward animal was known for its golden fur and eyes. Mainly, his eyes stood out. Big and round, shimmering like molten gold. Endlessly curious, Golden Tigers always seemed to be on the road. Which was probably why they were sighted everywhere. As far as reports go, Golden Tigers seemed to prefer a healthy diet of green leaves and yellow flowers. A rare trait for an animal coming from a carnivorous family. But when a traveller once sighted a Tiger lounging in the sun, in a rare moment of rest, he spotted blue birds and baby fawns nestled against its golden coat. Napping together peacefully.  Golden Tigers befriended anything and anyone. An old study stated that the friendly Tiger wasn’t always fully aware of his big and imposing form, scaring animals away. But when given time, and a few good glances at those big round eyes, other animals realised the Golden Tiger simply asked for friendship. Almost in an innocent, childlike way.– Moooi The Museum of Extinct Animals
