Description This four-panel screen shows hunters in a fantastic landscape. The seated figure of a prince or general surveys the scene from beneath his luxurious canopy on the far right. The riders and bearers both wear Mongolian-style fur jackets over their loose clothing. The attendants dressed in red boots and hats are shown presenting a tiger trussed up and tied to a carrying pole for their masters inspection. Elsewhere, another tiger, some deer, and a pair of cranes are also under attack from the hunters.
