In this way, the white tiger has become a kind of mythological creature.
It was said that the white tiger would only appear when the emperor ruled with absolute virtue, or if there was peace throughout the world. Of the Chinese five elements the color white represents the west which has thus made the tiger the mythological guardian of the west.
