Entry for Pandora's Box in Castle-of-Manips 

The nature spirit released from Pandora's Box in the mountains of Japan.
Similar to Dryads, these creatures reside in trees- their appearance an overall mimic of nature. Attempt to harm the mother of green by trampling or cutting down what she offers and one is simply cursed! It is thus considered to have some kind of mysterious supernatural power.

Kodama are said to take on the appearance of atmospheric ghost lights, of beasts, and of humans, and there is also a story where a Kodama who, in order to meet a human it fell in love with- took on the appearance of a human itself.

Just one of many evils unleashed when Pandora's Box is opened. How many evils can you name?

Stepping outside of the "box" so to speak. This took me 2 days and a whopping 96 layers! There are many aspects and details to view, so please feel free to gawk! 

Thank you ahead of time for all faves and comments! I appreciate everyone's support! You are all in inspiration!
