There are a little noticeable spots to some extent on the drawing part.
As a whole, the condition of this scroll is so-so.
Although, parent and child tigers are painted artistically.
A mother tiger intentionally puts her son over a cliff.
She expects that her son would come back from the bottom of the valley on his own and become stronger.
This is the scene.
