'The Thrashing Tail'
Please see the rough guide sketch that I have uploaded as an attachment 'TheThrahingTail_Distribution'. The shape of the distribution should look like that in the VAR_TVAR.jpg file
A statistical distribution has values at more extreme probabilities. If the distribution represents a 'loss' then the extreme probabilities represent the largest and worst losses. The 'tail'represents the largest and worst losses.
The concept for this illustration is that the 'tail' of the distribution is out of control. Hence the tail of the distribution may be represented by an animal tail which is thrashing around. A somewhat despairing grey haired suited businessman should be trying to grapple with and control the tail.
The x axis should be labelled 'Loss' the y axis should be labelled 'Probability'
Not necessary - but a refresher on probability distributions..

I do not have any so am looking for inspiration..
What colors do you want to see in your illustration?
I have no preconception about colors. The color of the line for the distribution should match that of the color of the animal tail.. I.e. the line merges into the animal tail.
