The Mountains Gate Gods....
one of the celestial stone Lions of East. these beasts have many names such as Snow Lions, Foo dog, Shishi, or Buddha's Lions.
I love to see this in a new Okami game. the lion are full of joy and love. and they dance around with a celestial brass orb.
their are often found in pairs, one's male and other female (with a cub under paw). Rui here is name of the male and Shi is female, and yes there name Ah and Mu or A-U-M. this beast is beast may be based on the Lhasa Apso dog breed in real life. more detail look on this [link]
please feel free to add a commit or two, many time people don't commit as much and i feel sad about that...
