Korean antique 2-panel screen painting depicting two tigers. The charming style of this original painting is indicative of traditional Korean folk tigers and yet, they of a finer quality. The artist paid close attention to detail including every hair of each tiger. Wide toothy mouths and round, wild eyes project a playful ferociousness. Painted in mineral colors and ink on paper. Each panel is signed by the artist.
