Yokai of the Week - Amikiri

Amikiri is a chimera of sorts, sharing the physical traits of various creatures: it has a serpentine body, a lobster's exoskeleton and claws, and the bill of a bird. And above all, it can fly! When no one is around, amikiri cuts up mosquito nets and other nets hung out to dry. Perhaps it's a distant relative of kamikiri?
Yokai Masterpiece #4 - Amikiri - colored chalk on poured concrete.
Officially, this is masterpiece #4, as I have two other unrevealed pieces from my original yokai series. Unfortunately this masterpiece is impermanent.
