Painters in Japan were never able to observe real tigers, and so they produced images based on tiger skins and observations of pet cats. In this drawing, Ishibashi has managed a convincing tiger, but the shape of the shoulders is rather strange, the typical problem when basing the body on a flaccid skin.
