Blessed Miko Gallery

The miko, the consecrated shrine maiden of the Shinto faith who attends the needs of the gods, is a staple archetype of both mainstream Japanese culture, and of 2D visual culture, whether serving as a symbol of dutiful virgin innocence, or, more appealingly, as a potent sorceress battling supernatural foes. Cutting such an appealing figure in either case, it is no wonder that artistic representations of them abound so.

Here, a formidable array of delightful miko has been prepared for your perusal, so many in fact that I have split the series across a number of galleries. There are no thematic separations made between the galleries, so you should hopefully find them all equally pleasing.
