It seems you’re referring to “Fūjin” and “Raijin,” two of the most iconic deities in Japanese mythology.

  1. Fūjin (風神): Fūjin is the god of wind. He is often depicted as a green-skinned demon holding a large bag, which contains the winds. In art and sculpture, he’s sometimes shown with wind billowing out of this bag.
  2. Raijin (雷神): Raijin is the god of thunder and lightning. He is one of the most popular and fearsome deities in Japanese mythology. Often, he is shown surrounded by drums, which he beats to create thunder. Like Fūjin, Raijin is also depicted as a demon-like figure, though his appearance can vary.

Both deities have been subjects of art and literature for centuries in Japan. One of the most famous representations of Fūjin and Raijin is the pair of statues at the Sanjūsangen-dō temple in Kyoto. Additionally, the iconic “Fūjin and Raijin” folding screen by Tawaraya Sōtatsu is a national treasure and represents these two gods in a dynamic and dramatic style.

Their imagery is not only limited to historical or religious contexts. Modern interpretations of Fūjin and Raijin can be found in popular culture, including movies, anime, and video games.
