Such a lovely little drawing from Miura. It's really nice to see him putting out something like this following his message at the end of the recent episode about being lonely. I hope he's having a good new year.
"Akabeko is a famous craft and symbol of Aizu region of Fukushima prefecture. According to legend, Akabeko is originated from a real cow that helped built a temple and refused to leave after it was fully built. This traditional folk toy is made from papier-mache on a bamboo or wooden frame and has a signature bobble head when moved. It also serves as charm for good health and easy childbirth."
