1500: Holy dragon (Keigo)

The blue dragon is one of the guardians of creation, a proud warrior figure. Keigo gives him the usual characteristic features, long spiny whiskers, and huge grasping claws, but he is half-obscured by the shower of cherry petals. A stunning picture, but it will not be an easy puzzle, since almost all the pieces are blue-purple!

Born in Kyoto in 1944, Kimura Keigo spent a halcyon childhood collecting beetles in the hills to the east of the old capital. A love of nature brought the desire to paint - animals, trees, rocks, and the traditional subjects from dragons to waterfalls.

Kimura is his family name, and as is usual with artists he uses his given name professionally, but does not appear to sign his paintings.

* This puzzle has smaller pieces than the standard size.
