About the artwork Oni 鬼

Oni (Japanese 鬼) are Yōkai from Japanese mythology. The conception ranges from the simple neutral spirit of a deceased person to grimly stupid ogre-like fiends to abysmally evil merciless demons.

Iconographically, Oni trace their origins to the Indian Rakshasa. They are usually depicted as ugly giant creatures with sharp claws, wild hair and one or two horns on their heads. Mostly they are human-like, but sometimes they have an odd number of eyes or supernumerary fingers and toes. Their skin is of any colour, but usually red, blue or green. Their fierce appearance is accentuated by a loincloth made of tiger skins and an iron-armed club (金棒, kanabō) that they carry. This image led to the expression Oni ni Kanabō (鬼に金棒), literally "an oni with an iron club", meaning "invincible". [Source: Wikipedia]
