In the Asian countries including Japan, there exists something called the ‘animal zodiac.’ It is said to have started in the ancient Chinese history. In Japan, we keep an yearly calendar according to the twelve animals, and 2010 happened to be the year of the ‘Tiger.’
Tigers have a strong yellow and black stripe pattern: the yellow of the sun, and the black of the darkness. This artwork was inspired by such stripes of the tiger. I hope you enjoy the endless cycle of the tiger days.
