Koshin – SOLD
Acrylic on Panel, Ready To Hang, 20 X 26 with Black Frame.
It is believed that Kōshin belief had arrived in Japan at the latest by the Heian period, and was adopted only by the aristocracy in the beginning. The most ancient custom is that of staying awake one special night every sixty days. It is called Kōshin-Machi (庚申待 – Kōshin Waiting). During the early years this custom became a kind of overnight festivity or party. I painted her as a Spirit of Fortune to bless those open to blessings. She is believed to bring us fortune with the right attitudes and right balance.
