Japanese ghosts, monsters and demons entered western scene through the works of Symbolist. Long black hair, white robes, or long necks, spidery limbs, whole scenery transformed in collage of sculls, are images of Japanese folklore.  On this diptych we see TOKUGAWA Mitsukuni preparing to cleanse an old shrine from evil spirits.

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.
