Tigers are one of the oldest and most revered animals in Chinese history. In Han mythology, the tiger was considered one of the four symbols for the cardinal points, representing the seven constellations of the West and the Autumn season. As well as being the symbol for peace, tigers were also associated with a successful reign and were regarded highly as protectors and guardians for their power, strength and courage.
