I’m going to miss looking at this head. 

Each of the pieces that make up the entire tiger, must be looked over, cleaned up and modified for making of the molds. I have saved the head for last. I’m actually quite partial to it.  Part of this “modification of mold making is some dental work.  I must cut out the canines to be able to get a better mold.  It is a sacrifice, and in the long run, the only way this thing can come together as a bronze.

Sawing out each canine. They have a piece of metal in them
so a reciprocating saw is required. 
So sad. But it is a part of the process.
