" Catch a tiger by the tail" To have a tiger by the tail refers to the act of having ‘embarked on a course of action that proves unexpectedly difficult but that cannot easily or safely be abandoned’. Similar to this phrase is the Chinese proverb ‘He who rides a tiger is afraid to dismount’, which gave rise to the phrase ride the tiger. Signed on the front Ready to hang. I created this painting using fine artist oil paints which will not fade when they get exposed to UV light Painting continues around the edges of the canvas giving a very contemporary style although it can be framed if you wish This work is sold unframed and shipped in cardboard box which is very secure for shipping canvases
