OKAMI | Wolf & The Elemental Spirits of Nature: Ceramic sculpture by Harumi Noguchi

“There was a time when I was small that I was looked after by a cross between a Japanese wolf and a dog.

Like foxes and deer, wolves are said to be messengers of the gods, while simultaneously they are revered as gods in their own right. It can be said that the wolf symbolizes mountain worship, in which it is believed that mountains give birth to the bounty that governs the whole cycle of life and death”.
