The Great Mysteries: birth, life, death, the suffering, the ecstasy, the simple joys of life. These ‘mysteries’ were the concerns of Jerome Tiger. The spiritual characteristics, the topics, and the heritage of his Indian people played an important part in the profile of his own personal character and his art. In the last year of his life, many of Jerome Tiger’s paintings were of a spiritual nature. “A Walk Through the Great Mysteries”, the second in the Mystical Series, was one of Tiger’s last creations.
