Color print of a man and a tiger in an outdoor setting. The man is standing above the tiger, and his proper left foot is placed on the back of the tiger. He is holding an archery bow in his proper right hand, and an arrow in his proper left hand. There is a tree behind the man and tiger, and there is a white panel with calligraphy along the left side of the print. Poems by Bunbunsha and Bunsō Takeo.
