The sickle is hovering menacingly in the air and the image of a “Shinigami” is reflected in the shiny and cold metal. The shinigami is a harbinger of death and is often drawn as a sinister skeleton dressed in black, tattered robes and wielding a large and pointed scythe. However, the Shinigami’s role is said to be one who ushers the soul into the afterword in order to prevent them from wandering around the Earth as a lost soul. Death is truth that no human can escape or try to elude, but it could be that Shinigami protect us even after our deaths.
Today, the “Shinigami” who is responsible for death and rebirth are featured in these illustrations. Please enjoy them.
