This divine art is commonly practised by the practitioners from Beast Realm. This art allowed one to condense the projections of the ancient holy apes on the top of one’s head. Each holy ape projection represented a portion of the giant ape’s divine strength.
The «Holy Ape Dragon Strength Divine Art» was created by an unnamed old man thousands of years ago. This divine art ranked third amongst the cultivation techniques he created. The divine art also was taught to seven beast cultivators directly by him.
Normally speaking, the time to condense just a single phantom could take at least tens of years.
