As an apex predator, the tiger is associated with death. Yet, they are also associated with immortality. Indeed, in some ancient Asian cultures, the tiger was seen as a shapeshifter, having the power to transform from human to animal and spirit. They were believed to transition from the physical to supernatural worlds and back.
At Mat Beast, we like to think the tiger represents our tenacious side, our ability to change, and our never quit attitude. Go get'em tiger.
