Tiger & Bamboo Theme


The tiger has the power to control the wind, and wind is its constant companion.   Bamboo can resist the strongest winds without breaking.   Therefore, the two are distinctly balanced.  Introduced through Buddhism, the tiger represents the three principals of strength, nobility, and courage.
