Images of Omoikane 2017/11/19 13:54
Is the Shinto god Omoikane depicted visually in any readily accessible places? Having a hard time finding anything reliable. If not on the web, maybe suggestions of books with such images?

(I think your question is not in the right section of the forum.)

Do you mean the gKojikih deity, Omoikane?
If so, I know this famous ukiyoe by Kunisada (Toyokuni III) 1786-1865, which represents Amaterasu emerging out of the cave Amano-Iwayato.

And, the deity in yellow costume on the left side of the drawing is Omoikane.

I forgot again to romanize the name of the artist I mentioned in my second post.
This is not Kunisada, but a relatively contemporary artist whose name is ITŌ Ryūgai (1880-1959). I found his illustrations concerning "Kojiki" in a book I have.
