Sphere with tiger and bamboo

British Museum


Tigers and bamboo have often been depicted together in Japanese art, symbolizing complementary aspects of strength. The tiger has aggressive strength, while the gentle but firm bamboo will bend but not break. Here the carver, Mitsuhiro, shows off his mastery of various techniques through the details covering this small shpere.
