Kabuki Lion by taichiorange Kabuki Lion by taichiorange
This was a piece that I created earlier this year (2004). It is a painting of a Kabuki lion dancer. I have a love for everything Japanese - and I try to reflect that in my art.

Anyhow, this is one of my favorite paintings that I've done recently. :)

Comments/Critiques are welcome!

Thank you!

I Love The Lion Dancers, They Looks So Cool! And This Is So Lovely! ...Do You Know What They Represent/Mean, What Does The Dance Stand For? (I've Looked But I Can't Find Out?)

Thanks! If I remember correctly, a father lion and his two cubs were playing on a bridge and one fell off ... and the dance is the excitement of being reunited with the son who fell. :D

:jawdrop: It´s a PAINT??
I really though it´s a picture from viewing the tumbnail....
Such a gorgeous job.
I totally love the male Kabukis too. Especially these ultimate wigs of pure fluffyness.
And I liek painted faces too. XDDD
