Yōkai Art Challenge - Day 24
There is an old proverb in Japan, "the walls have ears and the shoji have eyes". Shoji, or paper screens, are an iconic part of Japanese architecture, and a creepy staple of any haunted house. These sliding outer partition doors and windows are made of a latticework wooden frame and covered with a tough, translucent white paper. Over time, wear and tear to a shoji may transform it into a Yōkai with many eyes. Naturally, a Mokumokuren is an unnerving and intrusive spirit that will blink and stare at anyone within sight.
