Abura-Sumashi, by Richard Svensson. "The potato-headed Abura-sumashi; a weird but popular Japanese Yokai from the island of Amakusa . Its name can be translated as "oil wringer", and it may be connected to the extraction of oil from the seeds of the Camellia sasanqua plant. This image was done for a book project about the creatures of japanese folklore."
