Shi-Jin’s Dragon 1 of 9

February 10th, 2009 in Japanese,Paintings

This is a painting of one of 9-Dragons Shi-Jin’s dragons. Okay let me explain if you’ve never read “Water Margin”, a classical Chinese Folktale from around the 16th century. In the story there is a character named Shi-Jin, also known as “Nine-Dragons Shi-Jin” because of the 9 dragons tattooed all over his body. I wanted to do 9 paintings of dragons in dedication of Shi-Jin and what those dragons within his body suit of tattoos would look like.
