Artwork Description

Adzusa, Saemi, Tachiko. These three sisters were given the responsibility by the High Elder to watch over the growth of the baby dragons. Their job is to nurture them until they reach a certain prime age. They are to train the dragons to fight, teach them the ethics of the forest, and above all, discipline them to be loyal to the empire. Though, the sisters are often wrought with their own frustrations within the confines of the kingdom's authority and they are beginning to devise their own plans for the dragons. Plans, which do not adhere to the rules of the Emperor. In this picture, Adzusa, the eldest, with her sisters sing a song from the Nihongi.
'Like the Shitadami.
Which creep around.
The great rock.
Of the Sea of Ice.
Where blows the divine wind—
Like the Shitadami.
My boys! My Boys!
We will creep around, And smite
them utterly, And smite them
utterly.'
