‘Man Slain by a Tiger’ by the artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins is a five colour screen print and the first print in a series based upon the medieval poem 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight'. "Man Slain by a Tiger is based on a rather jaunty Staffordshire pottery group titled "The Death of Munrow", which itself borrowed from the automaton in the V & A known as Tipu's Tiger. The gruesome event portrayed in the automaton and in the pottery group is based on fact, though rather fancifully reinvented."
