Drawing figure with imaginary story. Story is from Korean myth. Once upon a time, tiger and bear wanted to become a human. Upon hearing their prayers, Hwanung, son of Lord of Heaven, gave them 20 cloves of garlic and a bundle of mugwort, ordering them to eat only this sacred food and remain out of the sunlight for 100 days. The tiger gave up after about twenty days and left the cave. However, the bear persevered and was transformed into a woman. Bear-woman became Hwanung's wife and soon she gave birth to a son named Dangun. He is the legendary founder of Gojoseon, the first ever Korean kingdom.
