Lady Amaterasu Okami by SankofaRida Lady Amaterasu Okami by SankofaRida
Amaterasu
(天照, Amaterasu?), Amaterasu-ōmikami (天照大神 / 天照大御神, Amaterasu-ōmikami?) or Ōhiru-menomuchi-no-kami (大日孁貴神, Ōhiru-menomuchi-no-kami?) is in Japanese mythology a sun goddess and perhaps the most important Shinto deity (神, kami?).

Her name, Amaterasu, means literally "(that which) illuminates Heaven".

She was born from the left eye of Izanagi as he purified himself in a river and went on to become the ruler of the Higher Celestial Plain (Takamagahara).

She is also said to be directly linked in lineage to the Imperial Household of Japan and the Emperor, who are considered descendants of the kami themselves.


Ōkami (大神, Ōkami? lit. "great god", though also a pun for "wolf"[7]) is an action-adventure video game developed by Clover Studio and distributed by Capcom. It was released for the Sony PlayStation 2 video game console in 2006 in Japan and North America, and 2007 in Europe and Australia. Despite the closure of Clover Studios a few months after the 2006 PlayStation 2 release, a port for Nintendo's Wii console was produced by Ready at Dawn and Capcom, which was released on April 15, 2008.

Here's my entry for The Okami Wii Contest!!

My version of Okami in her goddess form, much to the delight of Issun!
