Kamaitachi, by Toriyama Sekien.

Kamaitachi are Japanese wind monsters resembling weasels with sharp claws. Three kamaitachi ride inside whirlwinds, which they use to hide their presence. As the wind blows by travelling humans, two kamaitachi strike out with their claws, while the third applies medicine to help heal the human.
