Product Description

Idea of the Product



Four Celestials – White Tiger



With formations in Four Symbols, thegeneral constrained the beast within.





The FourSymbols



The Four Symbols represent the fourdirections in traditional Chinese culture;

they are Azure Dragon, White Tiger,Vermillion Bird, and Black Tortoise.

In ancient times, such symbols weremostly used in military

as the guardians of the army.

Later on, the symbols became fourcelestials and were humanized:



Azure Dragon the “Mengzhang”

White Tiger the “Jienbing”

Vermillion Bird the “Lingguang”

Black Tortoise the “Jiming”



In Han’s tradition, the southernshould be the upper direction,

which is different from the modernday northern direction as the upper.

When it comes to the four-symboldirection, we should put the Azure Dragon in the left (east), the White Tigerin the right (west), the Vermillion Bird in the front (south), and the BlackTortoise in the rear (north).



The Song of Heritage based on thestory of the Tiger in medieval times:



The FourCelestials – White Tiger



It represents the western 7 mansionsof the 28 mansions (constellations) in early times,

symbolizing Shaoyin in Four Symbolsand metal in five elements.

It is a deity of the west andautumn.

During Han Dynasty, the fiveelements became connected with the five ethics,

and the White Tiger became thesymbol of integrity.

The White Tiger is a deity masteringweapons and war.

It has multiple powers such asbanishing the evil and disasters, calling for abundance, upholding the justice,calling upon wealth, and forming relationships.



The origin of White Tiger derivedfrom the worship to ancient mansions.

In Taoism, it is called “Jienbing”,

and has various titles of “Ruler”,“Holy General”, “Divine General”, and “Evil Capturer”

in different scriptures.



Tiande –Azure Tiger



Origin of “Five Tiger Generals”



Legends said that when thestrategist Liu Bowen was observing the mansions,

he found that “Five Tiger Generals”would come down from the heaven

and assist Zhu Yuanzhang, who wasdestined to conquer the nation

as the emperor of Great Ming.

The Inheritance of Hu Yeh in ChineseFolklore:



Earthen God –Yellow Tiger



“Hu Yeh” is the guardian of temples

as well as the mount and courier ofgods.

There are two forms of “Hu Yeh” infolklore,

one is “Yellow Tiger General” withyellow hide and black stripes,



Lower Alter –Black Tiger



and the other is “Black TigerGeneral” with black hide and white stripes.

In Chinese traditions, “Yellow TigerGeneral” is mostly for civil officials

while “Black Tiger General” is formilitary officers.

It can be divided into two kinds:one with yellow hide and the other with black hide depending on the design.

The former is simply called Hu Yeh,but the latter has the titles of Lower Alter General and Black Tiger Marshall,etc.
