Description

Kappas are aquatic reptilian humanoids who inhabit the rivers and streams found all over Japan. They are generally the size of a human child, with scaly skin. Their bodies are built for swimming, with webbed, thumbless hands and feet, and a turtle-like beak and shell. A pool of water lies on top of their skulls. A Kappa must always have its head wet especially when it is away from water, because it is the source of its power. If the head is without water the Kappa will lose that power or possibly die.

Kappa often live solitary lives, although it is common for them to befriend other yokai and even humans. They will eat almost anything, but they are particularly fond of human anuses and cucumbers. They are fond of mischief, martial arts like sumo wrestling, and games of skill.
Kappas are proud and stubborn, but also fiercely honorable.

Kappa can be crass and violent. Mischievous by nature, they love to peek up women’s kimonos and loudly pass gas in public. Lakes and rivers where kappa live are often marked with warning signs. Their preferred method of attack is to drown or bite their opponent to death under water. They have been known to devour humans alive. Usually they go for the anus, in particular a mythical ball of flesh located just inside the anus, called the shirikodama. In the water, there is no escape for anyone who crosses a Kappa. On land, however, it is possible to outwit one: the kappa will feel obliged to return a bow, and if it can be tricked into bowing so low that the water in its dish spills out, it can be easily overcome. Once bested, many kappa have been made to swear loyalty and friendship to their victor for the rest of their lives.

    I got this for my wife who really loves it. I am not disappointed in the painting. I just wish there was an option for a bigger size.
