Image of the “Tiger Taming Arhat”- Fúhǔ Luóhàn, mounted on traditional silk paper scroll. Actual painting D: 144cm/57in x 91cm/36in, mounted D: 190cm/75in x 104cm/41in. I am very fond of this depiction- Chinese interpretations usually show a man beating the tiger into submission with a metal ring, this one shows the Master and Tiger living at ease with one another- more in tune with the original idea that the Tiger was tamed with kindness and the two eventually becoming friends.
