Thousand Stitch Tiger Belt

WWII Japanese Senninbari “Thousand Stitch Tiger,” with painting of a tiger, signed and sealed by the artist, Asahi.

Scholar Sugihiko Uchida commented that, “It is said that a tiger can go through a thousand miles, and then, can return through a thousand miles. It is why a tiger is depicted on a Sen-nin-bari cloth as the wish for safe returns of soldiers.”
