Making scrap metal sculpture Tiger



With over 20 years’ experience making metal sculptures and widely regarded as a leader

in this field, Mr.Somkid  has created a stunning piece entitled “Fearless Tiger ”.


It is a larger than life-sized depiction inspired by the infamous “Vichit”, a tiger from the Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary in Thailand.


The tiger is one of the 12 animals of the Zodiac. The tiger represents power, courage and strength both internally and externally. and the beauty of this mighty beast with courage and ferocity.

Tiger is also linked to belief and faith. that it will be a spiritual anchor that can inspire a safe life experiencing happiness and prosperity

The sculpture - made of recycled metal engine parts - took eight months of daily labor to complete and displays Mr.Somkid’s imagination as every recycled component was carefully chosen to represent each part of the tiger. By comparison, a much larger piece featuring simpler building techniques can be completed in as little as four months.

A close inspection of the artist’s work reveals this remarkable attention to detail and his unparalleled craftsmanship
