Cat / Tiger from the Tamed series enchants with the dual tale of playful companionship and untamed spirit.This visual ambigram invites exploration from both sides, offering two distinct yet interconnected worlds.

On one side, a spirited kitten engages in playful reverie within the coziness of home. Wooden floors bear witness to frolicsome paws, while a feather toy hovers mid-air, suspended in a dance of feline delight. The scene unfolds with a sofa, small table, and a potted plant—every detail exuding the warmth of domestic bliss.

Turn the piece, and a wild panorama unfolds. A majestic tiger prowls a jungle tree, eyes fixed on unseen prey. Monstera leaves create a lush backdrop, evoking the dense foliage of untouched wilderness. The canvas expands to reveal moonlit mountains, a meandering river, and a star-studded sky.

Our exclusive “stetching” technique seamlessly merges traditional stitching with modern sketching, creating a lifelike and intricate portrayal. The monochrome elegance achieved through white fabric and a single strand of black floss imparts a timeless quality, reminiscent of classic graphic art.
