In 2002, animation version of began to broadcast. At that time, I was not so interested in this story because the author, Fuyumi Ono (小野不由美) clearly borrowed almost entire mythology concept from ancient Chinese tales and history such as Kirin.
Despite all the differences in settings, according to the author, every Kirin has one unique chaperone for its whole lifetime. In this case, my favorite black Kirin’s chaperone is called Haku Sanshi (白汕子) or Sanshi. Her upper body is woman, lower body is leopard and a lizard tail. She has white/silver hair and green eyes. I think I love her more than the Kirin. 🤣
In 5 years I am looking for opportunity to paint her on canvas. And finally I did. But clearly I cannot paint her exactly like so I choose snow leopard over leopard, regular tail over lizard tail, blue eyes over green eyes.
She lives on snow mountain, hiding from people. But she is more like a protector than monster.
Hope you enjoy this one. 😀
This piece was painted on Fredrix Blue label ultra smooth stretch canvas in traditional profile 3/4”. It has been varnished and carefully packaged with two same size cardboards, buffering paper, bubble wrapping paper and 4 corner protectors.
Although I have tried my best to match the color of digital profile and the actual product, the color might still vary depending on different monitor settings. Please be aware of this fact.
Note, the painting ships unframed.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.
