But those masterpieces have normally been on canvas Ð not on the human body itself. But look at the large photograph here and you'll realise that is exactly what has happened. For this tiger, as our exclusive pictures show, is not all it seems... You are looking not into the eyes of the tiger but at the backs of two lithe models. And the jaw of the beautiful beast is actually the shapely posterior of a third. The unique Ð and utterly momentary Ð work of art was created by body-painter Craig Tracy at the request of a charity determined to save the subject of the picture. This year the United Nations has put the tiger at the top of its list of 'most important' endangered animals to be saved in 2010. And, among that species, the most perilously close to extinction is the beautiful South China Tiger.The principal charity dedicated to theirPhoto: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: At San Felipe Del Morro in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, inside one of the lookouts.Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Just after takeoff on a flight on Sunday morning at dawn from Kansas City to Philadelphia, April 3, 2011.Photo: Terminal view of Philadelphia's City Hall looking up Broad Street in Center City.Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo:
