Hi friends in TL,

In China, from a long time ago, in most places of north china, people give the hand-made tiger shoes and tiger hats also tiger pillows to kids. They are all made of cotton and cloth, above all the color is bright and lightweight, it's the most comfortable stuff for kids.

Tiger means strength and power, it's a good wish to babies and children, wish them grow up healthy, strong like a tiger, and also wish the tiger can keep them and the whole family to avoid evil spirits, in safety.
You can see a “王' on the forehead. it's a word of 'king' in Chinese. In Chinese culture tiger is the king of the animal world.

Thanks for viewing!

Thanks for sharing


Hello Jusni! Mysterious scene and dangerous point of view. Good light and shadow. Very good shot. Well done!

I love your comment on the sign on the tiger's forehead - I would never think about it that way but now you mentioned it - it is really so! And for me tiger IS indeed a king of animals, although I'm not from China.

Hello Jusni
Interesting composition with an animal this size, trying to isolate him would have been quite a task.
The hole in the tree trunk a good addition to the shot, well done
