Historical Background

The Nue is a creature from Japanese folklore which has the body of a tanuki (raccoon dog), the legs of a tiger, the head of a monkey and a snake in place of the tail. It could also transform into a black cloud and fly around. They tend to be associated with misfortune and illness. The Nue is similar to the Chimera from Greek mythology.
