Classification/ Drawing
Dimensions / 35.5×43.2cm

This drawing features different animals: giraffe, dog, turtle, monkey, crab, fish, duck and octopus. Below what you may identify as a tiger is written “NJP” implying that the animal is Nam June Paik himself. You can see the tiger’s tail is stretched out very long, part of which is rolled up in a spiral. This recalls that Paik once mentioned a Korean proverb saying that it is more frightening to see only a tiger’s tail rather than the entire tiger itself. Such animals as fish, tiger and turtle are motifs often used in Paik’s video installations.
