Guardian Dog

guardian dog
I took this photo in a neighboring shinto shrine.
Many trees grow in precincts of the shrine, and the place is usually very calm.
I like this guardian dog covered with moss.

The statue is very impressive; The moss gives an impression of life and movement.In european mythology, there are also guardians dogs.
