Kitagawa Utamaro brings his iconic style to bear on the folk tale the Heron Maiden.
🔻
See more of Utamaro’s pioneering work on our new post, link in bio!
🔻
In this story a young man nurses a wounded heron back to health. Later he meets and marries a beautiful woman, who commands him never to look at her while she is spinning silk. Alas eventually he gives into temptation, and discovers, wouldn’t you know, that his wife is that same heron. The spell broken, the heron must fly away.
Did you know Shunga was banned until around 1990 in Japan! And the first biggest exhibition in the world was @thebritishmuseum in 2013!
I'm celebrating the diversity and openness of culture this city has. When I saw the exhibition, I was blown away not only by the beauty, but also by humanity in the pictures. You can see and imagine what the people's life was like about 200 years ago, and to my surprise, our behaviour haven't changed. Shunga is also called pillow pictures or laughter pictures and many of them are silly, funny or beyond imagination 😂 they are showing the life of Edo period and humanity.
Keep watching this space it will make you surprised and I only show more explicit images only on my webpage. .

"هرگز تصور نکرده بودم زاویه ای که از آن به فرد نگاه می کنیم تا این حد بتواند روی نظرمان اثر بگذارد. آن قدر عادت کرده ایم از سطح برابر یکدیگر را ببینیم که حتی آدم هایی که نسبت به ظاهر خودشان بیشترین دقت را دارند هرگز به این فکر نمی کنند که ممکن است از بالا دیده شوند. این اشتباه بزرگی است که به خودی خود می تواند ماهیت یک شخص را فاش سازد."

特にお気に入りの一枚。
構図が現代の歌詞カードにありそうだし、ってゆうか椎名林檎様感あるしっていう。
興奮しました。すごいなあ

"I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money. I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down." - Jack Kerouac
