One of the neatest designs on a note i think. This sun tiger is depictedvon the Sherman Dor Madrasah in the Registan square in Samarkand.



Copied from the link above:

The powerful lion-tiger is Amir Yalangtushbiy himself, swallowing his neighbors as sun radiates his glory; or rather the animal-sun shows the tenacity of pre-Islamic Zoroastrian solar symbolism. Legend claims the architect responsible died for his heresy, yet other 17th century madrassah similarly adorned. The choice of colors, blue, white, yellow and green reflects Bukhara influence.
