The tiger (虎): bold, dynamic, protective.

 

The tiger is ferocious animal, but the Chinese also see them as protective. At the Lunar New Year, children often wear hats and shoes made in the shape of a tiger's head to protect them from evils.

 

Tigers harness a huge burst of energy during a hunt, and then eat the entirety of their prey and sleep for a week. As such, tigers represent the extreme ends of emotional, physical, and spiritual spectrum: ferocious/protective, energetic/lethargic, feast/famine—all contained within the same animal. A tiger’s stripes are symbolic of this yin/yang energy: the light and the dark are not binary, but complementary forces dependent on one another. 

 

Hanzimals is a modern interpretation of the Chinese zodiac: an icon/illustration of each zodiac animal combined with each animal's Chinese character, presented as a single glyph. These museum-quality posters are printed on thick and durable matte paper.
