Shirime is a descriptive name sometimes given to a monster appearing in a yōkai picture scroll painted by haiku poet Yosa Buson between 1754 and 1757. One of eight strange creatures depicted therein in simple haiga style, it has the following appearance:
The nuppori-bōzu monster of Katabira crossroads in the capital. It has no facial features, and one eye, which is in its anus, and its shining is like lightning.
Not sure if this Shiri-me's eye shines like lightning,but here's my Shirime action figure.I sculpted his head from clay.For the body I used an Emce Keeper's body,I sculpted his Oshiri and his eye(me) onto the body with clay.I painted all sculpted parts with acrylics and sealed with Mod-Podge.
