This illustration has an intriguing contradiction with its morbid theme, and its lush and vibrant color scheme for contrast. The focal point revolves around the remains of a fallen samurai, whose decaying corpse has melded with the surrounding nature. Unnatural blooms of flowers, fungi, and foliage emerge from its bones, creating a captivating sight. The scale of the creature raises questions—how towering must it have been to stand among the cherry trees in the background? Perhaps it draws inspiration from the Japanese mythological creature known as Gashadokuro.
