Symbol number thirty-one is the Torii, a spiritual gate from Japan. These gates are found at the entrance of or within a Shinto shrine. The purpose is to divide the physical world and the spirit world. The gate is said not to actually exist in this world. It exists in a place that overlaps with the spirit world, so where it stands is a holy place where the spirits are more likely to hear you. There are many different Torii designs, and each one provides different information about the specific. shrine. The Torii is also sometimes used as a symbol of Japan. The background texture was created by making water blossoms in the red paint.
