Takezawa Douji the Second was a hugely popular acrobat during the Edo Period popular for numerous kinds of performances as well as puppetry. As an entertainer, you could say he has a high affinity with Bowie, who in a sense was an illusionist.
This art piece takes inspiration from Diamond Dogs and changes a dog for the Nine-Tailed Fox, and David Bowie switches places with Douji to perform the spinning top.
