  • Katsushika Hokusai: The Great Wave off Kanagawa, 1831⁣⁣⁣⁣
_________________________⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
“The Great Wave dwarfs Mt Fuji. Spray falls from the tentacles of the wave like snow on to the peak. The whole picture is orchestrated to pay homage to the steadfastness of the sacred mountain. Three swift boats (oshiokuri), delivering fish to market in Edo, head directly into a great storm wave out at sea off Kanagawa. The oarsmen crouch forwards, ready to battle heroically with the elemental power of the ocean.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Hokusai had rehearsed the wave several times in his thirties and forties, when he was absorbing the lessons of European-style perspective. To this was added, in his old age, a veneration of Mt Fuji as a talisman of longevity. The design may already have been drawn in the early 1820s. Then, later in the decade, Prussian blue became available in large quantities from China, providing a wonderfully vibrant new pigment for sky and sea to add to the traditional indigo. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
The series (Thirty-Six Views of Mt Fuji), of which this is the most famous print, was one significant result. Over the years as many as 8,000 impressions of each design were printed. For little more than the price of a double helping of noodles, anyone in Edo could purchase their own impression of The Great Wave'.”⁣⁣⁣⁣

  • “Famous women now and then, Kesa Gozen”
「古今名婦鏡 袈裟御前」

At the end of the Heian era, there was a very cute and beautiful woman in Kyoto as capital named Kesa Gozen.
 A samurai at the court, Morito Endo was in love with her.
 However, Kesa Gozen married with Wataru Minamoto, another samurai at the court, and declined about Morito.
 But Morito couldn't control his emotions and said, "I will kill your mother and I will die." Kesa Gozen was wondering and worried, she was killed as a Surrogate in other to protect her husband and mother.
 Morito repented of what he had done, became Monk of Buddha, and went through rigorous training and spent the rest of his life.
 There was a sad story of beautiful woman even during the Heian period.

平安時代末期、京の都に、袈裟御前というとても可憐で美しい女性がいました。
北面の武士、遠藤盛遠は、彼女に恋い焦がれました。
しかし袈裟御前は、同じ北面の武士の、源渡に嫁ぎ、盛遠の想いを断りました。
しかし盛遠は、感情をコントロールできず、「あなたの母を殺し、自分も死にます」と言いました。
思い悩んだ袈裟御前は、夫と母を守るため、身代わりとなって盛遠に殺されました。
盛遠は、自分がしたことを悔いて出家し、文覚上人となって、厳しい修行をして残りの人生を送りました。
平安時代にも、美しい女性の悲しい物語がありました。

  • Thrashing Ronin. Ukiyo-e style thank you gift I made for @johndeweese & @brittnideweese for letting me stay with them, talk about art and owning a business, and watch their good movies. They’re some of my favorite people- go follow them if you don’t already, both are incredibly talented. Oh yeah, he also gave me the copic  brush pens I used to make this, which I’m stoked to make more shit with. All around good weekend so far.🤙
