Amabie x Aphrodite

 

“When a pandemic devastates the country, draw an image of me and show it to as many people as possible.”

Amabie is Japanese yokai (monster-spirit) who mysteriously appeared from the sea water and  instructed people to share the image of it to stave off the disease.

Amabie was first documented by a government official in Japan in 1846.

I made this drawing so that people can 'share' this image.

You can download the image, only for the personal use against the pandemic!
