'1,000 faces for 1,000 tigers' Tiger Face Painting

Tigers, leopards and cats of all kinds are my favorite things to paint! I just saw an article about '1,000 faces for 1,000 tigers.'  It was a campaign held at Fo Guang Shan Dong Zen temple in Jenjarom, near Kuala Lumpur. Feb. 20, 2010, marked the launch of a conservation campaign by the World Wildlife Federation (WWF) to double the number of wild tigers in Malaysia by 2022 (the next year of the tiger).

80 volunteer face-painters and helpers face painted in two sessions to get the 1000 faces done.  See Photos at

At the Pilgrim Place Festival each October I have a team of about 20 painters.  We do 850 faces in 2 six hour sessions! I understand just how hard that is to get done.
