Besides, this beautiful picture is not inanimate, but it has a unique voice as if it is telling a story to the person who enjoys it. It is a story about Japanese people, the unique features of folk culture and beliefs of this “cherry country” country.
Ebony cats represent those who like to show off their outstanding abilities. Sharp, challenging eyes imply: “Humans can’t do that, do they?”. Besides the cat, there is another white cat and a small blue bird stacked on top of each other.
Camouflage art reached the pinnacle of perfection in this beautiful photo. Not only does the ebony cat blend with nature and heaven, but it also tries to find out where your blue bird is.
Excerpt from the book “The Lost Wolves Of Japan” by writer Brett L. Walker (2005): “In Japanese mythology, farmers worship wolves in temples, offering food to their teeth to pray for them to protect crops from wild pigs and deer. In folklore, Japanese people believe that talismans with images of wolves will protect them from disease and other unwholesome things; bring fertility, enrichment to farmland and children for couples ”.
In Japanese folklore, foxes represent affluence and complexity. That belief grows even more when people live closer to nature expressed in stories, feasts and languages. Fox also exudes an enchanting scent around people. Inari is a god of fox, embodies the fertility, rice, tea and sake, of agriculture and industry. Inari is also one of the main kami of Shintoism.
The mystical but peaceful image is shown in this beautiful picture through the meeting moment of a female student and Inari in a deserted ancient temple.
Fox is one of the most revered animals in Japanese tradition and folklore. They are often the protagonists of stories that tell great intelligence and supernatural abilities. According to Yōkai culture, foxes have the ability to transform into human form. In some folk cultures, that ability of foxes always brings more horrifying obsession than luck, because it often turns into extremely beautiful girls who fascinate and suck human air. But for Japan, like the loyal guardians, friends, lovers and wives.
