The tiniest Tiger

Year TigerThis is the smallest tiger in the world – ever

Obvioulsy its not real – the 1mm tiger sculpture is smaller than a grain of rice – its so small it could fit through the eye of a needle, and can only be seen properly with a magnifying glass.

It was created by a Taiwanese artist in celebration of the Chinese Year of the Tiger, which begins on February 14, and took three months of hard work to create

Tigers rotate with 11 other animals on the Chinese lunar year zodiac.  They are said to bring variable luck, being dependable and unpredictable at the same time.
