This giant timber tiger by Gabor Szoke [1] leaped into life during the ‘Hello Wood’ [2] art camp in Hungary [3], which brought 200 young designers and architects together to form projects for eight different Hungarian communities. Best of all, the ferocious feline installation is made entirely from salvaged lumber [4]!

Participants worked together to create artistic projects based on the socio-economic concerns of the regions. One of the team’s principal sponsors is Hungary’s largest wood trading company, which promotes environmentally and socially conscious architecture. Find out more about the projects and camps at Hello Wood’s Facebook page [2].
