18" x 24" oil on panel, with black frame and ready to hang.

I created this painting based on a 'komainu' statue I saw in front of a quiet shrine in the hills near Nagano Japan.  These lion-dog mythical creatures protect against evil spirits in both Shinto and Buddhism in Japan.  Standing beside the statue I got such a sense of benevolence and power - I tried to capture that in this painting.
