日本語: 國輝画「本朝英雄傳」より「牛頭天皇 稲田姫」、大判錦絵
English: Gozu Tennô kills a dragon to save Princess Inada. He, whose name literarily means "ox head heavenly king", is a deity of Buddhist origin considered as identical to shinto's Susanoo-no-Mikoto. Note that Tennô (天王) here means "heavenly king" and is distinguished from Japanese Emperor's title Tennô (天皇) though the same pronunciation.
