Respect by Lelia Respect by Lelia
One day seeing a documentary about Sadhus, I heard about a story of a Sadhu who was meditating in the forest and when he opened his eyes he comes upon that a tiger was sleeping next to him. I drew this story before, but I wanted to do this to represent the harmony and the respect.

Since the tiger is one of many totem animals, there are several interpretations of dreams involving them- it's believed that when one dreams of being chased and/or attacked by the animal that it's usually a manifestation of a real threat or struggle they face when awake.

Wow, very beautiful! I love the rich warm colors. I also really like how the tiger's tail is involved; it reminds me of the man's hands. Gorgeous artwork with beautiful meaning. :)

Not only is this beautiful (serious kudos for the drapery, the sadhu's hands and the tiger... just... the tiger) but the backstory is really cool. I initially clicked on it because I wanted to know why the tiger was bowing...
