Tiger Jesus Stencil

What does a giant, ferocious feline and the Messiah have in common? Well, if you walk down Rivington St. (which seems to be increasingly the focus of our Nikon cameras in recent weeks) in that gray zone between SoHo and the Lower East Side, you’ll find out. On the south side of the street, between Bowery and Chrystie streets near the foot of a tenement building is afixed an amazing piece of multi-colored stencil street art, in the form of a plaque, bearing the images of both a tiger and Jesus. What a combo!
