Komainu are mythical creatures from Japanese folklore, often depicted as lion-dogs. They are traditionally placed at the entrance to temples and Shinto shrines to protect them from the forces of evil.

The angular lines and dark tones of the engraving lend it a mysterious, intimidating atmosphere. This linocut is a one-off, handmade piece.
