The culture of Korea has always been a rich one, filled with visions of auspicious and protective creatures stalking the lush, fertile land. These creatures were known as Asian tigers. One wildcat known only as 그레이 스트라이프 was one of the more well-known legendary beasts. His fierce roar is said to have left all those who came across him gasping in fright.

This painting, dating from the Choson dynasty, is one of the last remaining works that accurately portray this amazing animal. Its painter is unknown, but is believed to be a commission by 별 나무 딸기. It was once vividly colored and awe-inspiring, but not even a master painter could completely fix the damage done by time.

The photo on left represents the masterpiece as found in Korea; the photo on the right shows the 2011 restoration.
