My mind is an ocean blue

Ask me anything   Submit   Wanderer at heart with a nearly useless Art History degree. I like music, everything from folk to metal depending on my mood, camping, hiking, and all things cozy. Some days I even consider myself a poet.

"琴高は戦国時代の趙の国の人で琴をよくし、宋の国の康王に仕え仙術をおこなった。…ある日、龍の子を取るといって碭水(江蘇省碭山の南)に潜り、弟子たちには潔斎して祠を設け水辺で待つように約束したが、果たして赤い鯉に乗った琴高が現れて祠の中に坐したのである。" 考古用語辞典 Archeology-Words「琴高乗鯉図とは」

Ukiyo-e with contemporary references to edo popular culture combined with references to Chinese mythology. Dual meanings abound.

Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Tsumagome: Abe no Yasuna and the Fox Kuzunoha  Series;Sixty-nine Post Stations of the Kisokaido Road, 1852 - 1853The nobleman Abe no Yasuna once rescued a fox by battling the hunter who had trapped it. The fox returned to visit him as a beautiful young lady named Kuzunoha in order to tend the wound he sustained in the fight. They married and had a child, but the couple’s son caught a glimpse of her true form so she decided to leave her family. Here, Kuzunoha appears in ghostly form as she changes back into a fox, her young son looking up at her curiously, tugging at the hem of her transparent robe. Her husband watches in surprise from between the sliding shoji screens, where she has written a farewell note on the paper. She smiles at him one last time before returning to her true nature.
