12.00280.00

This is not a typical depiction of this Hakkenden scene. There are many other ukiyo-e from Toyokuni III of the same scene, but this one is unlike any other. The way he pushed roof over the clouds, positioned each character, emphasizing the clash of two heroes is a prototype for any modern action comics, double sided clash of the heroes’ scene. It´s Thor fighting Hulk; that big.

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.
