Oh Description

A Birdlike Guardian Spirit that has characteristics of various creatures. It is the female counterpart of the legendary paired sacred birds known as Ho-oh. Regarded as the ruler of all winged creatures, Ho-oh is said to appear with the arrival of a virtuous monarch. Because of this, many believed that Ho-oh protects those blessed with talent, virtue, and a pure will.

Ho-oh motifs were incorporated into many buildings and works of art in continental Asia in order to show respect for the kind of virtue that Ho-oh guarded. This custom was transmitted to Japan, where buildings features the same motif. Some of these building still stand, with the Phoenix Hall of Byodo-In to the south of Kyoto being one famous example.

According to legend, the male and female counterparts of Ho-oh have different songs to welcome in the dawn. Oh represents the yin elements of Onmyo and is said to give its blessings to refined, loving and loyal individuals
