Penang Street Art (Okinawan Mythology Murals)





The Okinawan Mythology Murals located at a back alley of Stewart Lane were painted by Japanese artist Takayuki Miyazono. The murals tell the story of a common Okinawan folklore on Kijimuna (キジムナー). Kijimuna are said to be small wood spirits according to Okinawan mythology. They are said to live in trees, commonly on the banyan tree and are often described to look like a child with red hair covering their bodies and large heads.
