The Wind God has been familiar to people since ancient times as a deity that controls the wind. It is often depicted as a naked figure rushing through the sky with a "wind bag (kazabukuro)." This "wind bag" is a sack that blows out wind, and it is said to bring wind and rain through this bag. The Thunder God is known as a deity that governs thunder and is affectionately referred to as the "god of thunder" in Japan. It is visually portrayed as a "demon," with ox horns on its head, wearing a loincloth made of tiger skin. Alongside it, it is depicted with drums strung together in an arch shape and holding drumsticks. When the Thunder God beats his drum, it's believed that lightning flashes and thunder roars. There's also a saying that a mythical creature called "thunder beast" falls when this happens. The statues of the Wind God and Thunder God at Asakusa Temple in Asakusa, paired together, are famous.
The design has been arranged in a modern style, resulting in a strikingly vibrant look that captures attention.
