LSU Tigers Desktop Sculpture
ICON Artworks is proud to pay tribute to the beloved Louisiana State University mascot with our officially licensed LSU Tigers Desktop Sculpture! A perfect gift for students, alumni, faculty, and fans alike. GEAUX TIGERS!!
LSU's athletes have been known officially as "Tigers" since 1896.. The name "Tigers" seemed like a natural choice at the the time since most college teams were taking on the names of intimidating and ferocious animals, but the true story of LSU's athletic title is buried in Civil War history. The name was commonly used by Louisiana solders as far back as the Mexican War. But, during the Civil War, a military regiment known as the Louisiana Tigers "distinguished itself with its fighting spirit in the battle of the Shenandoah Valley, where it was said they 'fought like tigers."

ICON Artworks Cast Pewter is handcrafted by our team of skilled artisans with an antique finish in the highest quality, lead-free Fine Pewter alloy used for sculpture. After platinum, gold, and silver, pewter is the fourth-most-precious metal in the world. Pewter has been used since the Bronze Age because of its lustrous silver finish, its malleability, durability, and its ability to capture incredibly fine detail. Pewter does not rust or deteriorate and can be enjoyed for generations.
