Friday Flash 55 #8


Kitagawa Utamaro
A Flirt, Edo period 1791-1792
(re-print from re-cut blocks)


A present to the man from Japanese colleagues, the nipple consigned her to a drawer in the family home. Decades passed tucked up with old tax returns. By chance she was found by aged children, her mica sparkle, subtle coloring and elegantly embossed printing admired. Framed and hung, she is home after half a century. 






Flash 55 is part of the G-man's plan for world domination.

that is pretty cool...and what once relegated her to the drawer i think has found a bit more freedom as well...i think she is beautiful...

Ha! Such an innocent curved line and a dot... Would love to have seen him at a museum with his children. Glad she is exposed for all to admire.

I think I counted 56 words. (Just kidding.) That is so neat - as hard as haiku for me. I can't hardly say my name and address in 55 words or less.

The western mind has such issues with the purity and beauty of the human body. Damned shame, isn't TIT?
