A love letter to the Tengu of Yakuo-in Yukiji Temple in Mount Takao, Japan, the Karasu Tengu (Temple) head is heavily inspired by their noble appearance as beings who bear great spiritual power among their kind. This tengu variant are seen as respected individuals among their flock and are in the midst of training to become like the long nosed masters among them.

The mountain dwelling tengu are sentient beings training within their flock to harness their innate spiritual power, growing from trickster avian beings with a strong bird-like appearance to a more human appearance with a long nose. This transition gives tengu a diverse range in appearance, with the Karasu Tengu (Temple) head demonstrating the final stretches of a journey in the midst of transformation towards becoming a master.
