Drumming That Evokes True (re)Source
dedicated to Ame no Uzume
the painting above ... it came from my great admiration to one of Shinto Gods, Ame no Uzume.
Shinto (神道 - way of God/gods) is believed as a religion of Japan by many but I don't really think Shinto is a religion. it is believed & worshiped as the Origin of Japan ( or even a world ) in Japan that there is no founder of Shinto. the basic of teaching of Shinto seems similar to Native Indians', like seeing a god in every breath ... like a mountain, river, rock, stone, breeze, wind, air, water, sea, flower, so on. ... if you go to Japan, you will see those Torii, shime nawa, jizou, (jizou is more likely Buddhism) etc, to worship the spirit (god) in the area or the element.
