The incense smoke that accumulates inside the body resembles rising from the lion's mouth.
The lion's fur is drawn in spiral patterns, and the fur on the chest, claws, legs, and tail are detailed.
The face is also very well made, with a three-dimensional and powerful nose, beautifully erect ears, forehead hair, mouth wrinkles, and even the fangs.
