Does a white tiger symbolize anything?

My sister collects them... so just wondering

A symbol of serene strength and power in Japan and China where it is the tiger, not the lion who is "king of beasts".

In fact, in Far Eastern astrology, the White Tiger is a supernatural figure who presides over the Western, or autumn quadrant of the sky. The spirit of the White Tiger combines the courage and fierceness of a soldier with an ethereal, magisterial dignity. In ancient times, the head of the White Tiger graced the shields of soldiers going into battle, the entrances to important fortifications and the bows of the Emperor's fastest ships. To wear the symbol of the White Tiger embroidered on ones robe was indicative of high rank among military officers. And in the ultimate tribute, the title of "White Tiger" was bestowed upon Yin Chen-Hsin, a canonized general by the last Emperor of the yin dynasty. The general's image is found on the entrance of all Taoist temples to this day.

The mystery and mythology surrounding the White Tiger continued unabated for centuries. Its likeness was frequently painted on sanctuary walls to frighten away demonic, evil spirits. In fact, tiger images pervade the remaining temples and structures of the famous Shogun dynasty of Japan. Now the spirit and essence of the legendary White Tiger are captured forever in fine Maki-e artistry on "The White Tiger of Asia" pen from Namiki.

From a culture that has revered the art of writing for more than a thousand years, "The White Tiger Pen of Asia" celebrates the writing arts and the symbolism of this majestic beast. Namiki has produced only 300 of these regal fountain pens for world-wide sale. Togadashi-maki-e, one of the techniques used to create this remarkable writing instrument, dates to the 7th century. With its eight layers of hand applied lacquer, it combines individual artistry with time-honored techniques to create a one-of-a-kind treasure.

Hira or flat maki-e is also incorporated in the design. Each pen in this limited edition is hand-painted by a single artisan, a process that takes three months to complete. Superior craftsmanship is just the beginning. While it is unquestionably a masterwork suited to the finest collection, "The White Tiger of Asia" is designed for writing pleasure. A precision 18kt gold nib and superior ink delivery system ensure an exceptionally smooth stroke and clean line. Use it to add flair to your most consequential documents, or retain it in pristine condition as an important addition to your collection. In every aspect, "The White Tiger of Asia" from Namiki redefines quality premium writing instruments.
