The snow lion is a legendary creature and a representative of the Tibetan people. It is also used to represent the hermit and yogi who became saint. Tibetans believe that meditation can cleanse the body and soul, it also brings them closer to the god. This meditation room panel depicts the anthropomorphic Tibetan snow lion, so as to be protected from evil spirits, and the mottled cracks on the door panel tell the traces of the time.
