Regular price $2.00

Amaterasu [Shinto] “shining in heaven”
Emperors of Japan are considered to be the direct descendants of Amaterasu. Daughter of Izanagi, sister of Susanoo and Tsukuyomi, it is said that she created Japan with her siblings by painting the landscape. She used to rule in tandem with her husband-brother Tsukuyomi, until he killed another goddess and she declared him evil; separating the day from the night.

The original piece was done in watercolor and pencil on rag paper, measuring 11"x7".

Each tiny print measures approximately 2 1/2" by 3 1/2". It is a lovely reproduction of the original work, on photo matte paper. Keep it in your wallet or your purse, pop it on your alter, make your own mini art gallery, stick her on a bookshelf or somewhere she can watch over you...the possibilities are limited only by your imagination!
