The white animals facing each other, encircled by Sasanian style roundels, are white tigers, one of the “four” Chinese divine creatures. The red birds in the alternate roundels are the fabulous birds called “Sujaku”, also one of the four divine creatures. In ancient China, the withe tiger was belived to be a guardian spirit who presides over the west, and the “Sujaku” a guardian spirit who presides over the south.
