Imagine wearing all that stuff and then having to take a piss/shit. Looking like royalty in those times had to be hefty price for these women.
You'd think that, but some royalty just relieved themselves wherever they happened to be, and expected their maids and houseworkers to just clean up after them,depending on the time period. It was a gross time.
Any source on that or is it "common knowledge"
Guess I gotta apologize to J. K. Rowling.
It's a decently-famous piece done by Yoshitoshi, probably the Meiji Period's foremost woodblock artist. The title is "the Lonely House on Adachi Moor". It's a folktale about the Onibaba of Adachigahara, known as the "Kurozuka"- but that's actually the name of her burial mound, it's just it's basically become a byword for the old hag.
By the way, that woman she's about to gut? That's her daughter. She just doesn't know it until after she's killed her, stolen her baby's liver, and found an amulet she gave her as a baby.
Thanks for letting me know. Now I am more curious to know if this piece belongs to any set. Gotta say even in ancient times Nippon out-kinked everyone else.
That guy is the biggest player in the room.
Just wondering, is there any "birth giving" scene in academic art?>>75804
Thanks for this beautiful contribution.
JK has plenty to apologize for, you're fine
I love how the baby is just like "sup?" and mom is sitting there like "the fuck…?"
