Tanuki Pop Art Print

from 25.00

Tanuki (狸 or たぬき), raccoon dog, is a mischievous jovial Japanese folklore spirit monster of the yokai family, thought to bring good fortune and prosperity to those who form a relationship with him. He is a shapeshifting, illusion-casting prankster, a popular cultural icon in traditional as well as modern Japan. The leaf on his head allows Tanuki to shapeshift and play tricks on unsuspecting folk, often resulting in monetary gain. This makes Tanuki an icon, as he is often placed outside business establishments in Japan akin to maneki-neko, the lucky beckoning cat, drawing visitors to come in and spend their money.

Our fluffy troublemaker Tanuki print—a beckoning symbol of fortune, or perhaps a symbol of staying young, playful and wild—will help you brighten up your walls with some much needed colourful whimsical Japanese folklore magic!
