As longtime readers of the Museum know, every so often, your friendly Curator caves in to her forbidden craving . . . to have a tiger.  This fellow is found on page 3 of "Bennie and the Tiger," a moral tale of innocence (Bennie, all of three years old and temporarily unwatched by his nanny) protected by faith from the forces of evil (the Tiger, getting the usual bad rap).
Can't see the fierce majesty?  Tigerhance:
