About this product
- DescriptionThis is a study of visual and textual images of the well-kwn mythical Japanese creature tengu in medieval Japan, focusing on a late 13th century illustrated hand scroll kwn as the Tengu zoshi. This half human, half bird trickster figure came to represent destructive, impure, and transgressive impulses. In examining representation of the tengu, the author reflects on the place and nature of evil in the medieval Buddhist imagination.
