All dragons were drawn gorgeously with Sanskrit characters. The high-resolution pictures are printed clearly under the supervision of Keisuke Tejima, a Kyoto One Stroke Dragon artist, by applying plate-making technologies for faithful reproductions that are as close to the original pictures as possible. In addition, the details are finished carefully and uniquely among the different types of OMAMORI (OMAMORI Banner, Framed OMAMORI, OMAMORI as a hanging scroll, OMAMORI Plaque, and Take-along OMAMORI).
*These Omamori were finished by applying a specialized technique (high-resolution printing and special processing) to reproduction paintings, instead of using the originals.
