The dragons of the Nikkō Temple are famous for their beauty and detailed design. The Tōshō-gū Temple in Nikkō, Japan, is known for being the final resting place of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate in Japan. This temple is one of the most sacred and venerated places in the country.

The Nikkō Temple has a large number of dragons represented in its different structures, such as doors, ceilings, columns and lamps. These dragons are considered protective guardians of the temple and its sacred contents. It is believed that their presence drives away evil spirits and symbolizes the will to protect and preserve Buddhist teachings.

Dragons in Japanese art and culture are associated with water and are considered powerful and benevolent creatures. His figures carved and painted in the Nikkō Temple exhibit great attention to detail, with vigorous expressions and meandering bodies that seem to be in motion.

Visiting the Nikkō Temple and admiring the magnificent dragons was a unique experience for me. Inspired by that treasure, I will never stop painting them.
