Original artwork description:

This guardian is called “Shachihoko.”
It is a Japanese mythical creature that has a tiger head and fish body, and it creates waves and rains. Shachihoko is considered as a charm of fire protection of Japanese castles.

Shachihokos are rarely seen in the art or even illustrated in stories. In consequence, most people outside of Japan don’t know of their existence.
This is why I had a desire to give birth to the magnificent Shachihoko as a Japanese artist.
