Crystal White Tiger Paperweight, "Mighty White Tiger, Guardian of the West"


Chinese Mythical White Tiger Design

This art decor piece from the studios of LIULI Crystal Art comes from a collection of four mythical creatures—each correlating to a compass direction.  With a deep background in Chinese cultural symbolism, the tiger seen here in “Guardian of the West – Mighty White Tiger” leaps forward ferociously, bounding with both strength and vigilance.  The tiger is the strongest and most independent of the four mythical creatures, representing the West as a perfect counterpart to the azure dragon.

Azure Dragon, White Tiger, Vermillion Bird, and Black Tortoise; Azure Dragon is the guardian of the East, White Tiger is the guardian of the West, Vermillion Bird is the guardian of the South, Tortoise is the guardian of the North.
