Title Kotobuki & Shisa
Description This is a card done for the June Swap (Yokai) over at Pabkin's group.

My apologies ahead of time. I knew nothing of Yokai before I started this little trek...

So, a Shisa is a guardian spirit very similar to the lion-dogs found in China. These are smaller and specific to Okinawa.

The Kotobuki is a chimera-type creature that embodies all the animals of the Chinese zodiac - dog legs, tiger trunk, snake tail, boar back, monkey hands, horse mane, rabbit ears, ox horns, sheep beard, dragon neck, rooster comb and a rat head. Is that all of them? I think that's all of them.
