Japanese Wind God

Also known as Fujin

Wind God

He is buffeted and under pressure.

This ancient deity stands on mountain tops with his white beard swirling and his wind banner whipping every which way.

How he gets from one mountaintop to another is a mystery. Possibly a primitive type of hang-gliding over which he has little control. How he must long for calm windless days.
