Artist's Description

LEOPARD Large, ferocious spotted CATS who appear in some Chinese stories.

Leopards were embroidered on the robes of military officials of
ancient China to suggest their superior combat skills.

Three varieties of leopards lived in the hills of
the northern and far western provinces in China: the
Manchurian leopard; the North China leopard; and
the rarely seen snow leopard, which lived in the
rugged, high-altitude, snow-capped mountains of
upland Central Asia.

LI The word li is a translation of three different
Chinese words, and the concepts it describes are
related.

The different meanings are symbolized by different
Chinese characters, but the difference is sometimes
not so obvious to those who are not reading the
original Chinese.

Li is used to describe the idea of a principle
that underlies everything, a vital force that fills
matter.

The concept is important, especially for
Neo-Confucianism.

In modern movies the animated cartoon leopard is known now as then for its bravery, martial ferocity and fighting skills.
