Japanese God of Thunder Horimono by Soju Yanagimura


Good to see that there are still modern day artists who can carve something beautiful like this.

From Wikipedia :

His name is derived from the Japanese words rai (thunder) and “god” or “kami” (shin). He is typically depicted as a demon-looking spirit beating drums to create thunder, usually with the symbol tomoe drawn on the drums.
