I'm fascinated by this Figurine of Mr Hugh Munro being mauled by a Bengal Tiger (1792). It can be found in the British Army Museum. I don't think I've seen such a violent incident depicted in earthenware before. Tippoo's Tiger in the V&A shows the same gory scene in life-size, and I plan to make a special visit soon.
