This unusual bronze sculpture stands in Kelvingrove Park and shows a Royal Bengal tigress taking a meal (a peacock) to her hungry cubs. It is by Auguste-Nicolas Cain (1867) after a drawing by Rosa Bonheur and the granite pedestal is by Mossman. This was presented to the city by a former Glaswegian John S. Kennedy of New York in 1867 and there is a replica in Central Park, New York.

This article is based on the guidebook "The Glasgow Guide".
