Sesshōmaru and Inuyasha’s father is a mysterious fellow. He never appears alive in-series. His humanoid form never appears at all, not even in a flashback. Rumiko Takahashi never even gives him a canon name––we’re stuck calling him the Inu no Taishō, his title. We, the fans, are left to build his…

From Wiki: ”Nansō Satomi Hakkenden (Kyūjitai: 南總里見八犬傳?, Shinjitai: 南総里見八犬伝) is a Japanese 106 volume epic novel by Kyokutei Bakin. It was written and published over a period of nearly thirty years (1814 to 1842). Bakin had gone blind before finishing the tale, and he dictated the final parts to his daughter-in-law Michi. It is translated as The Eight Dog Chronicles, Tale of Eight Dogs, or Biographies of Eight Dogs.
Set in the tumultuous Sengoku period (350 years before Bakin lived), Hakkenden is the story of eight samurai half-brothers—all of them descended from a dog and bearing the word “dog” in their surnames—and their adventures, with themes of loyalty and family honor, as well as Confucianism, bushido and Buddhist philosophy. One of the direct inspiration sources of the novel is the 14th-17th-century Chinese epic novel Water Margin. The story of a princess marrying a dog who brings her father the head of his enemy seems to be a reference to the Chinese myth of Panhu.”
Embrace was a 72 ft wooden, cathedral-like sculpture of two human figures, “in celebration of all our relationships”. The site-specific artwork was created by the Pier Group for Burning Man 2014.
It was the largest project to date for the Pier Group, which gained acclaim for its previous Burning Man installations The Pier, Pier 2, and the Ichthyosaur Puppet Project. Crews began construction on Embrace in October 2013 at the Generator community art space in Reno, and in studios in Vancouver and Portland.
During this year’s festival the massive wooden sculpture was set aflame and Trey Ratcliff was on hand to capture the incredible moment. Below you can see what the interactive sculpture looked like before it was burned.
Stevie Nicks is such a wonderful Person, I don’t know her personally and this makes me a bit sad but her Music is wonderful. Her smoky voice makes me happy and her Songs make me so happy.
My favorite Songs will always be 7 wonders and Rhiannon.
I know her from American Horror Story (Coven) and I was so happy to see her in this season.
She Looks like a very lovely and nice Person!
