With protruding horns and barbells and large round eyes staring to its left, the dragon in the monochrome shades of ink looked humorous in spite of its majestic figure. The dragon is called ”Un-ryu（雲龍）, a flying dragon in clouds”. It looked stylish as well. It was originally painted in the 16th century by Kaihō Yūshō（海北友松 1533-1615 ） on the four fusumas (sliding partitions), in the Kenninji-temple（建仁寺） in Kyoto. You can see the whole painting here.
