Friday Photos: Just a Couple of Nudies But They Are Works of Art

Today's photos come from Kouri Island in Okinawa, Japan.

The picture with the children facing a full moon should be easy to figure out.

It was a mural on the outside wall of a small museum I took shelter at when a storm was heading my way.  

The same photo was in a children's book sold at the museum.

Before taking any photos inside the place, I asked for permission and was given the green light.

That's how I managed to get this photo of a dragon and some sort of goddess.

Then, the rain stopped and I left.

Thinking I could just do an online search and get the history behind these nudie photos was a big mistake.  They had some books at the museum that may have explained the artwork.  There's nothing available online to help me.  So, now I have an excuse to go back to Kouri Island, again.
