The Wise Tyger, maharishi's own mythical beast that combines two powerful animal archetypes and has been based on the Mandarin Square embroidery found upon the outer garments of officials in imperial China, Korea or Vietnam. The embroidery was detailed with animal or bird insignia and was indicative of the rank of the official wearing it; Tigers were used as a symbol of military might and protection during the Ming dynasty, and here represents man, an earth bound creature now granted flight on his spiritual journey.
