The four protector-gods
© Hiroyuki Suwahara

1000: The four protector-gods (Suwahara)

The traditional gods portrayed in vibrant colour: Seiryu the blue dragon of the east, Byakko the white tiger of the west, Suzaku the red phoenix of the south, and Genbu the black snake/turtle of the north. The "blue" of Seiryu is actually a rather ambiguous term, and here he sports a suit of glistening verdigris.


Born in Ibaraki, in 1969, Suwahara embarked on a career as a freeleance illustrator in 1996. He has specialised in historical figures, especially from the Three Kingdoms story, and brings a very modern technique to some traditional themes.

Suwahara is his family name.
