1000: Achala and dragon

Achala is one of the Five Wisdom Kings, with a fierce expression (one fang pointing up, the other pointing down) and a background of fire. He is know in Japan as Fudo, which is a translation of the meaning of Achala, "immoveable", symbolised by his seat on a solid rock. The dragon overhead is enveloped in a golden cloud, which promises also monetary fortune (another pun: "golden cloud" = 'kin-un' = "gold (money) luck"). Finally, written over the top part of the image is a sutra promising to banish any remaining evils. Altogether an auspicious painting.
