The figure of the woman-tiger hybrid, or yali, has a long and storied history in Indian visual and literary culture. The earliest recorded image of a yali is found on seals from the Indus Valley Civilization, which date back to the first millennium BCE. These seals depict a powerful being with the body of a woman and the head of a tiger, and are thought to illustrate a lost tale from classic Vedic literature.
Throughout the centuries, the figure of the yali has appeared in numerous works of art and literature, and has taken on a variety of meanings and symbolism. In some contexts, the yali is seen as a fierce and powerful guardian, protecting the faithful and defending against evil. In other contexts, the yali is seen as a symbol of fertility and abundance, representing the life-giving power of nature.
