The Wind God

Facing the Thunder God, on the other side of the opening screen, The Wind God marches forward with a billowing sail, sharp claws, and an eager grin.

Controlling winds

The inky clouds rear up as if controlled by the Wind God. Who will come out on top in this epic clash of the elements?

Painting on panels

This work has been created on a fusuma (a sliding door). You can see how the work is separated by these panels.

Tarashikomi technique

The clouds are drawn with ink using the 'Tarashikomi' technique and bold brush strokes, giving the screen a complex tone and movement.
