Red Kasa by the-crazy-spork Red Kasa by the-crazy-spork
what the lyrics say:

kono saki ni
donna sakura ga
sako to mama yo
watasha kono ki de
kuro suru
chiru mo chiranu mo
nushi no mune

translation:

I don't care a whit
What cherry tree blossoms
Just down the road.
I will stick with this tree
Petals scatter or stay-
My chosen man.

done in photoshop 100% by me (sans the lyrics). i love the old historical japan with it's pleasure quarters, and how that became the essence of their culture. especially the songs the geisha sing: the ko-uta. i like how it's not blatantly obvious with the sexual overtones (undertones is more like it). especially with how they incorporate nature and then play on the words with a second meaning.

i dunno, maybe i'm just more appreciative of this stuff because of the dance lessons i've been taking.

This looks a lot like the illustrations that I saw once in a Japanese magazine that my grandmother brought back with her from her stay in Japan... very soft, nice and very stylized!

I love the old histories of Japan, especially the samurai and geisha. Thanks for sharing this piece with us!
