This wonderful 1908 painting of a tiger attacking a buffalo in a tropical jungle makes for a remarkable scarf, but is, all the same, somewhat unbelievable. Henri Rousseau (1844-1910) was a French tax inspector, and only became serious about painting when he retired, but then his life got even more serious as he was imprisoned for fraud.

In fact, he was only released from prison in order to complete this huge 5 x 6 feet painting. He never travelled abroad, so his paintings are all derived from travel books, and visits to the Paris Botanical Gardens - hence the upside down bananas and the imaginary jungle! Very impressionistic.

The image frame is a Weston Malachite. Weston is renowned as one of the world's most creative scarf designers, often using natural sources to produce beautiful scarves sold in luxury stores worldwide, but offered here at a very significant discount on the retail price. The image has been made available by courtesy of the Cleveland Museum Of Art.
