Japanese Two-Panel Screen "Leopard with Cubs"



With gold clouds on gold leaf with camellia on river's edge. In history, Japanese artists did not see leopards or tigers in real life because the animals were not native to Japan, they lived in China. Artists were only exposed to skins and stories brought in from abroad. Some artists assumed that leopards were female tigers and depicted them as such. That could explain why there are tiger cubs with a leopard mother in this screen.
