The large and massive statue captures the rare moment, when a tiger dares to attack a wild boar from the back. Typically, both animals avoid each other, as they are physically more or less equal combatants. Impressed seal mark “Dai Nihon Genryusai Seiya” to base. Note the fine detail to the fur of both animals, including various types of incision and relief work.
