Foliage - Wallpaper set by heeeeman Foliage - Wallpaper set by heeeeman
So I recieved a lovely little suprise from ~Yastaka dedicating a series of his work [link] to me, which was very nice of him. So I quickly had a look through my old photos from Autumn in Japan, and found this from Kamakura.

This particular shrine complex is famous for a sacred cave where legend has it that once every 1000 years a spirit of a white stag emerges. Think protector of the surrounding woods type of spirit, similar to the forest spirit in Princess Mononoke.

So thanks :iconyastaka: , enjoy this wallpaper :)

Hit download to download the wallpaper pack including the following resolutions:

2560x1600
1920x1200
1680x1050
1600x1200
1280x1024

rar are the new zip, they can compress files more using rar than zip. You need a program like winrar to open them.

Reminds me of Celabi in Pokémon, the legendary Pokémon which has a shrine and guards the forest... he's not in the shape of a stag though. :XD:

You'll be suprised how many poekmon were designed with shinto mosters or spirits in mind. In fact the whole idea of Pokemon was inspired by he Shinto belief of a spirit in all things, and that evolved into actual animals (pokemon)
