The Tang lion (Karajishi) is regarded as a sacred beast with the power to ward off evil spirits. It is known for its unique form, with its head, neck, and tail covered in abundant flame-like swirling hair, and its body and limbs dotted with several patterns. From the Muromachi period (1336-1573) onwards, the Tang lion often appeared in art combined with peonies (Botan). This design melds the 'king of beasts,' the lion, with the 'king of flowers,' the peony, a symbol of wealth and honor, to enhance the auspicious meaning. This motif was not only used in kimono designs but also in the wedding furnishings of feudal lords during the Edo period(1603-1868), marking it as a design of great elegance and status.
