This bronze tiger has a big head, open mouth and teeth, chin-up head and glaring eyes, upright two ears, long and hook-up tail and walking feet. On the surface of the bronze tiger, the raised parts are high relief, among which grooves exist, and on the middle of its back, there are two small ring buttons. Judging from the ring buttons on its back, this article is used by hanging it or mounting it to a fixed place.
