Strength- San

I didn't think very carefully when making this card, which represents strength (surprise surprise), patience, compassion, and soft control. Thus Strength is more about mental discipline than physical power, which San and her spear don't exactly demonstrate. However, San does embody an incredible spirit worthy of respect. The floating head in the background is that of the Shishigami, a god who gives and takes life. The head is also thought to confer the power of eternal youth. What this has to do with strength, I don't really know. ^_^;
