Ama and Octopus after Hokusai

How horrifying this image was to Victorian society of Europe. Two octopuses eating a cold body of drowned girl. Hilarious.
What is more hilarious is that, in original print, large octopus is saying “At least I have shellfish I always wanted (to eat/suck).” At the same time smaller one is waiting to switch place with daddy 🙂

Tradition of the Floating World – Artist & Printshop, Muha @ BlackBOX is an example of how some traditions can survive through time and gain root from one culture and epoch into another one. Ukiyo-e, pictures of the floating world, are known through prints and reprints from the 17th century till now. In Japan, during Edo period, ukiyo-e prints served as mass produced posters from commoners. Usually artists would paint for print shop and then print shop would make multiple copies of the work. There was usually mutual understanding or contract between artist and the owner of the print shop, leading to the lifetime relationship.
