Below is my painting of the Mountain Spirit of Korea, a shaman or sanshin associated with immortality, nature and trees. The tiger here is deliberately larger than life to embue the calm power of the Sanshin. This is a spirit of ancient times and is seen incorporated within Buddhist temples when they were built in the 4th Century in Korea.
This piece was supposed to have been completed a couple of posts ago, but I had reservations about the bottom right corner.....I have promised myself to now leave it be.
