Lladro Mythological Tiger. Limited Edition of 1500.
This impressive white tiger is part of "The Spiritual Creatures" collection featuring the four animals in Feng Shui. This philosophy makes constant reference to a series of symbolic animals that stand for specific features favorable to creating a natural space. The animals are the Phoenix, Dragon, Tiger, Turtle and Snake.
According to this philosophy, the White Tiger represents strength, energy and courage. All these qualities are captured in this piece in which the sculptor eschews a realistic depiction of this feline, taking it to new heights in a blend of mythology and tradition instead .
