Japanese Two Panel Screen: Leopard with Two Tiger Cubs
A mom with two rambunctious cubs playing under bamboo on rivers edge. Beautiful camellia and gold clouds create a relaxing landscape on gold leaf. Leopards and tigers are not native to Japan, so the artists did not see them in real life, because of this artists were only exposed to skins and stories. Therefore, it has been said that artists sometimes depicted leopards as female tigers.
