San Franciscans Flock to the Shrine of Tatiana the Killer Tiger

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

Not too many made it to the recent unveiling of the Tatiana sculpture on Christmas Day, but now people are making pilgrimages to the site of the community garden at 274 Greenwich on the famous Greenwich Steps. Per sculptor Jon Engdhal:

“It was one year ago today that Tatiana died so senselessly, a scale statue is in place to remember her.”

This is a peaceful place, free of the vitriol that surrounds the Carlos Sousa Jr., Paul Dhaliwal, and Kulbir Dhaliwal case from a year ago

This thing seems larger than life – it’s probably quite heavy.

Enjoy it while it lasts. She might not be there a long time.
