Kitsune refers to the fox in Japanese myth and folklore. It was commonly believed that the fox could change its appearance into that of a human and there are many stories told of lovers or spouses realizing that their object of desire and love is a fox in human. What Senju intends with this image is to kindle the idea that we are all responsible for how we interpret the world around us. We often only see what we want or have decided to see. And if you love or desire someone, what is it you truly search for? Is it an idea or dream? Or when we find the true core of this being we so desperatly want to be close to, do we back away if this core does not correspond with the weave of illusion we have spun for ourselves?
