Kintaro

Kintaro

Dark fairy tale deck project
Read here for more.

"Kintaro (金太郎 often translated as "Golden Boy") is a folk hero from Japanese folklore. A child of superhuman strength, he was active and indefatigable, plump and ruddy, wearing only a bib with the Chinese character for "gold" ( ).

Several tales tell of Kintaro's adventures, fighting monsters and demons, beating bears in sumo wrestling, and battling a giant carp. "

Here's a bloody version of the carp being slaughtered into half. :D


XXI The World ( again )
