ANIMAL YŌKAI SERIES: TANUKI (RACOON DOG)
Media: mixed media on Bristol
Actual size: 2,5x3,5"
In folklore, the tanuki is a like a comical, hedonistic brother of the fox,
equally prone to mischief, shape-changing, and deception of humans. It’s
also very good at turning itself into inanimate objects, such as the
teakettle in the famous story of the Bunbukuchagama. While sometimes
seen as dangerous tricksters, they also prove to be cheerful, lovable,
and benevolent rogues who bring prosperity and business success.
