Coleman ‘Tiger’ King played the lead role of Irishman Robert J. Flaherty in the 1934 film Man of Aran. Apart from this he was also known as a fisherman, blacksmith and farmer, but, it was his fighting spirit and passion for guns that earned him his name of ‘Tiger King’. Epstein had cast six busts modelled from ‘Tiger King’, the current lot being one of them.  

Blue Bird Farm, Oppenheimer Collection.
