Korea has long been known as the nara Land of Tigers . because many tigers lived there. In Korea, where 70 percent of the country is made up of mountains, the most frightening animal you can meet in the mountains or near a village was the tiger. The tiger, who is called the king of the unemployed due to his bravery and dignity, was a object of respect and fear.
The tiger has been the subject of art since prehistoric times. The tiger seen in the petroglyph at Bangudae in Ulju County, South Gyeongsang Province is the oldest known animal. In the Three Kingdoms Period, tigers were not hunted, but they were made to have the characteristics of braches and guardians.
