ANIMAL YŌKAI SERIES: HA-INU (WINGED DOG)
Media: mixed media on Bristol
Actual size: 2,5x3,5"
Unlike the dangerous, often terrifying inugami (its yōkai brother), the ha-inu
are gentle and benevolent. These are the dogs that have been so good and
loyal throughout their lives, that when upon their deaths their masters bury
them in a shrine with the proper blessing, the dogs will be reborn with great
white wings, so that they may eternally help and protect humans. They
will seek humans in danger and help them in any ways they can,
even going as far as sacrificing themselves to help them out,
especially when trying to save a child.
