A red-orange tiger with a long slinky tail and long whiskers walks along the bottom left edge of a plate looking at bamboo shoots on the right side as it heads towards it. The tiger has lines around the body to accentuate its muscular body. The bamboo stalk is painted blue-green with a smaller delicate stem that curls upward along the edge of the plate. Leaves of green red and gold appear asymmetrically at the bottom and along the new shoot. The plate is reminiscent of Asian-inspired art.
