Can you make out the title of it reflected in the glass? I suppose if you could have, you would have.

I can't even make out "creature" even though I know that's what it says.

Bill, can you provide a clean blowup of the reflection?

I don't think it's the Mexico Pavilion. (that column in the background painted red- can't find ANYTHING like that at the Mexico Pavilion).

I'm guessing the World of Ancient Gold exhibit (1965) at the Travel & Transportation Pavilion. I have the exhibit catalog, so let me see if I can dig it out and see what I can find.

Okay, no luck. Nothing like this is listed in the World of Ancient Gold exhibit catalog.

Bill, what's on either side of the slide mount number sequence? Any clues there?

Unfortunately there were missing slides in this set before and after this slide. There was one of the Philippines, then several missing numbers, this one, several more missing numbers and then China.

Thanks - I see it's not needed now, and I can't read it anyway, but it was worth a shot.

Interesting that the title is "Shang Tiger" but they used the word "Creature" inside the glass case in front of the figurine.
