In 2010, I received a Year of the Tiger postcard from Taiwan showing a beautiful painting of a tiger, looking sinister.

This is one of my favourite postcards (and the succeeding stamp, too) from Taiwan for I was born in the year of the Tiger.
At the back of the postcard, affixed is a matching tiger stamp issued by the Chunghwa Post of Taiwan in 2010 to welcome the Lunar Year of the Tiger.

The stamp features an image of a tiger gazing ahead which. according to the Chinese astrology, symbolizes farsightedness, optimism, enterprise and luck.
