Artist's description:

In Japanese folklore, these animals possess a greater knowledge, long life and magical powers. Chief among them is the ability to take a human form; a Fox is said to learn to do it by a certain age (usually a hundred years, although in some legends — fifty). Kitsune usually takes the guise of a seductive beauty, pretty young girl.Other features commonly attributed to the kitsune include the ability to inhabit other people's bodies, exhale or otherwise create a fire to appear in people's dreams, and the ability to create illusions so complex that they are almost indistinguishable from reality. Some of the stories go on, speaking of kitsune with the ability to bend time and space, drive people mad, or to take such nonhuman and fantastic shapes as a tree of incredible height or a second moon in the sky.
