30. Madison Mall Tiger Installation

 

Of the many tiger figures that adorn the Princeton campus, only one is female.  The bronze tigress pictured here is part of a male-female pair that dominates the plaza between Whig and Clio Halls.  (The female is situated next to Clio, facing its Whig mate.)  Coincidentally, these statues were installed in September 1969 during the first month of coeducation at Princeton, though sculptor Bruce Moore had begun work on the pair before it was announced that women would be admitted as undergraduates.
