Five nails meaning the dragon emperor who climbs to the right shoulder. Lightning means God of Five Grains&rdquo. Sanskrit is from above "Kishouten" "Benzaiten" "Bishamonten"

The Dragon was worshiped from the Jomon Yayoi Era to be a giver of rain with the strength to purify the air and water, thus bringing huge harvests and abundant crops, and was called the “God of Five Grains” and has always been a decorative piece on all Shrines and Temples. In the summer months, with the power of lightning, the Dragon was thought to have the strength to have much needed water, fall out of heavens to create abundant rice crops. This is the reason Mr. Teshima’s One-Stroke Dragon is always accented with lightning and rain.
Rice is Japan’s lifeline and is in the DNA of everyone.

What is a “One-Stroke Dragon” ??? It’s actually an Art Form where the artist will create the image of a “Dragon” with only a “Single” stroke of the brush.
It is said that the “One-Stroke Dragon” brings long relationships, and this art form dating back to the Edo Period, has long been associated with bringing “Good Fortune” to the owner. In the olden days there were many artists that mastered the art of “One-Stroke Dragon” and is thus present in temples and shrines throughout Japan. Presently only a handful are in existence.

A Dragon’s position also has meaning. A Dragon “Facing UP” is proud and symbolizes “Ambition”, a Dragon “Facing DOWN” is praying and is acting as a “Guardian”.
