Through the dancing flames, you can see the elegant pointed face of a fox – Kitsune with many fiery red tails. It was in this author’s image that one of the main deities of Shintoism appeared – Inari, the goddess of abundance, rice, and everyday success.
Bright flashes of Belorechensk quartzite, from a single piece of which the figure is carved, resemble a blazing fire, abruptly and unpredictably flaring up and immediately fading, as well as the appearance of the Kitsune itself.
In Japanese folklore, it is believed that the older and stronger the fox, the more tails it has, an additional tail Kitsune grows every hundred or thousand years of its life. The symbolic sign in the mouth is the key to the gate of fate.
