Another detail from Tenryu-ji temple, Arashiyama, Kyoto.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Inés from Namur, Belgium

Un dragon ? Joue-t-il un rôle de protection ?

@Inés: Peut-être Inés... like gargoyles in European architectural tradition?

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

Wow, I'd get out of his way, no question! Good Shot Daroru :)

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

I love this figure. The big grin and bulging eyes seems to be an image in common with various pacific ocean tribes, like the Maori in New Zealand. Do you know if there is any connection in this art work?

@Twelvebit: I don't think so Twelvebit. This is a very common 'monster' or demon face in Japan, a motif seen everywhere. Don't know the story behind it though...

Alfredo J. Martiz J. from Tokyo, Japan

Fantastic detail!
