There's a LOT going on in this woodcut by Utagawa Kuniyoshi. I love the action
and the lines of movement in it. The story is that the dragon, Ryujin, an Ocean Kami (god)
very well loved in the culture of Japan has had his jewel stolen. You can see this jewel tucked
under the Princess' left arm. It's supposed to be a huge pearl. All of Ryujin's ocean helpers,
Jellyfish and small fish, are in the fight to retake the jewel. I just had to sew on this.
Then added some of the Paper piecing on the sides. The moons always want to be
to be in on things. This desktop will not let me size, center or change
or work with type sizes. I have no idea how this will come up.
it is EXTRAORDINARY!!!!!....the Energy vibrates OUTWARDReplyDelete
with your weave....it is just EXTRAORDINARY....the Flow
of the BeautyFULL Energetic Chaos of the Moment!!!
This story is also a parable in the Lotus Sutra. Kind ofDelete
different in the lesson within...that women are just as
capable as men in attaining enlightenment. I then got
sucked into results for images of Women Samurai. Thank you, Grace for your kind words.
