Chinese Auspicious Animals: Tiger
As one of the Four Auspicious Animals in ancient China, tiger is generally regarded as the symbol of power, worship and good luck.
The word for tiger (hu) is also a pun because it has the same pronunciation as the word "protect" (hu). Tigers appear on amulets because they are powerful animals, symbolize heroism, and are believed to be able to eat evil spirits, or at least cause them to flee, and can in general protect people from misfortune.
For these reasons, images of tigers and tiger's heads are considered particularly effective in protecting children from malignant spirits.
Tigers also symbolize longevity because the ancient Chinese believed tigers turned white after 500 years and could live for 1,000 years.
