According to Japanese folklore, Kiyohime was the daughter of a village headman or landlord named Shoji, on the Hidaka riverbank. The family was wealthy enough to entertain and provide lodging for traveling priests, who often passed by on their way to a shrine famous for ascetic practices.
One day, a handsome visiting priest named Anchin fell in love with a beautiful woman named Kiyohime, but after a time he overcame his passions and refrained from further meetings.
Kiyohime became furious at the sudden change of heart and pursued him in rage.
The priest and Kiyohime met at the edge of the Hidaka river, where the priest asked a boatman to help him to cross the river, but told him not to let her cross with his boat.
When Kiyohime saw that Anchin was escaping her, she jumped into the river and started to swim after him. While swimming in the torrent of the Hidaka river, she transformed into a large serpent or dragon because of her rage. When Anchin saw her coming after him in her monstrous new form, he ran into the temple called Dojo-ji.
He asked the priests of Dojoji for help and they hid him under the bell of temple. However, the serpent smelled him hiding inside the bell and started to coil around it.
She banged the bell loudly several times with her tail, then gave a great belch of fire that melted the bell, killing the priest.
** The discovery of this valuable rage asserting a being burning from within, began the research of profiled portraits of Kiyohime's family. We learned that she was a powerful source gifted in witchery -- and her advanced skills are what ensued the revenge and rage to take control.
The source of her strength has been chiseled from the lines of pulling and has been placed within this piece. If you are someone who needs help standing up for themselves, or you are ready to send out a strong revenge against someone who has done you wrong -- then this is the piece for you!
We have placed a spell upon the power so that death is not an option, as we do not condone killing someone... but you can torture and tease them!!
