Found Musashi Fudo

This is an image that has haunted me for years. I did an acrylic painting of Fudo back in 1994 that was accepted into the Delta Regional in Little Rock, Arkansas. One version of Fudo's symbolism I've heard, is that he is a Bodhisattva who has vowed to stay in Hell until all sentient beings are liberated. The uber-bodhisattva, if you will. Anyway, this is a replica of Miyamoto Musashi's version, and it's one of the nicer interpretations I've come across.
