This Showa period howling tiger exemplifies the sublime esthetics of Japanese culture during the Meiji era. It is anatomically accurate and rendered with uncompromising realism, the body extended, muscles flexed in readiness to attack, with outstretched limbs showing huge paws, toes splayed and claws emerging, jaws agape, tongue curled back, ears flattened and fangs exposed. The head is exquisitely finished with the piercing gaze of inset yellow eyes made of glass or crysta. Details of the fur have been rendered even on the underside. The long tail is held out, flicking excitedly at the tip. The tiger’s stripes are the original polished surface of the bronze, while the spaces between the stripes are matte. To achieve this pattern, the whole piece was first polished., then resist was applied to the polished surface and the matte areas created by applying a corrosive. The careful reduction of surface especially around the head and the wrinkled muzzle accentuates the animal’s ferocity.
