Blake, the Tiger
Sponsored byBarbara and Herbert Jenkins
"Tyger Tyger burning bright, In the forests of the night"....so begins a famous poem penned in 1794 by William Blake. Reminded of this poem, carousel carvers named this magnificent jungle animal "Blake.”
Blake wears no saddle or bridle, appropriate for a wild Bengal tiger. Hidden in the stripes toward his flank on the romance side, are the names of the sponsors’ grandchildren, Andrew and Caitlin.
He is a jumper animal located on the inside row of the carousel.
