The tiger has also gained popularity on social media, with netizens lauding it as Vietnam’s most beautiful tiger mascot.
The tiger was shaped using styrofoam, then plastered with gypsum powder and finally painted with the ‘lord of the jungle’s’ features, such as beard, teeth, and claws, to create an extremely realistic appearance.
The artisans spent 12 days completing the project.
The statue carries a message from the provincial government and locals wishing everyone a happy new lunar year.
