A replica of a tiger skull gilded in 23.5 carat gold is to be the main centrepiece of the Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition.

The wooden sculpture by Oxfordshire artist Martin Hayward-Harris is shortlisted for the 2013 award.

The skull is based upon a real tiger skull stored at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.
