D.H.S. Wehle

The RIT Bengal Tiger was sculpted in 1989 by zoologist and environmentalist D. H. S. ("Duff") Wehle. His life-sized sculptures of various wildlife attempt to capture the essence of the animals in their natural state. On the base of the RIT sculpture are the words: "In pursuit of Tradition, Spirit, and Pride." Wehle's father established the Gallery of Sporting Art at the Genesee Country Museum in Mumford, NY.
