Artwork Title: Tenjoname - Artist Name: Shigeru Mizuki


Shigeru Mizuki

The Tenjoname is a bizarre Japanese spirit whose name literally means "ceiling licker." It comes out of the darkness on cold, winter nights, and laps away at any accumulated frost or dirt or spider webs clinging to the rafters.
