Description

Pen and Ink on hand-cut, layered, suspended paper. 9" x 9" (Framed to 10" x 10") Kitsune, the Japanese fox, are often seen as an omen and act as messengers of the spirit Inari. They are tricksters and shapeshifters. They progressively earn up to nine tails through their wisdom and longevity. They gain first the ability to turn into a human and later the form of a beautiful woman - at which time they earn the first of their tails. This work depicts her first appearance in an ongoing series about Therianthropy and shapeshifting. The name is derived from an old Japanese rock-paper-scissors-like game, and translates as “Fox Fist”. Players simultaneously choose between a supernatural fox (狐, kitsune) which defeats the village head (庄屋, shouya) that defeats the hunter (猟師, ryoushi) ; the hunter defeats the fox.
