At The British Museum
This gallery travel through the history of Japan,from the prehistory to the present.This room begins with the recreation of a traditional tea house at full-size,where sometimes a show of the tea ceremony tooks place,but unfortunately I couldn't see it.Like I've said before the system of the gallery consists of a way from the prehistory(ancient original objects like paintings,figures,cups,weapons,clothes and other issues)to the modern era.
This time I'm going to talk about one object that I was strucked by it.Exactly it was at the section of modern art.
"A terrified woman is being dragged into a swamp at night.....sailed by a giant flying octopus and other supernatural beings.She clutches at a wooden grave marker(sotoba).The style of this lovingly painted work by manga artist Mauro is classified in Japan as "erotic grotesque",or ero-guro. Mauro says his favourite movies are those of US director David Lynch."
Personally,I think that it is a great work of art,
the election and combination of colours give to the picture a dismal and ghoulish atmosphere.I would like to analyze tis painting deeper: Attending to the tittle, the main figure(apart of the woman) is a giant octopus approaching to her,below this creature there is a spooky baby grappling her hair.On the top there is a bat ,at left a snake on the grave wood's sticks or sotoba with some kanjis drawn(I don’t know the meaning of those kanjis,but I’ll make a special section in order to decipher them),in the troubled water pokes an undefined creature that grabs her leg until bleed her,it seems to me like an amphibious monster man,at the background there’s a dark blur's shadow of a endwise human, and at forefront I found a baleful image of another human figure, but this time it’s completely different, it seems like a kneeling and naked old man, and this time it isn’t dark,but very fair, translucent, almost transparent, he’s landed on a strange object with 3 or 2 wood’s sticks that I haven’t found the meaning yet. And to finish I would like to highlight a shiny round light between the water and the surface, at first you can deduce that it’s the reflex of the moon, but it’s impossible because it isn’t altogether at the water...
Through the streets
Walking by the streets I realized the beauty and the essence of this city, its buildings, its atmosphere, its people, its culture...its magic. London is a cosmopolitan city, where people of all cultures, religions and breeds and countries live in harmony.Here I let some pictures that I made with my compact camera.
A telephone cabin(it really smells a bit strange...)
The only manga shop that I found,but I couldn't entry!!!
the Japanese fresh take away food restaurant where I ate!!!!delicious... ^^ but at Spain there isn't anything like that...
And to finish, Chinatown.There aren't words to describe it...it's simply fantastic, different, special.You have to go!!!
Me at Chinatown.^^
I hope that you have enjoyed with it,I would like to invite you to go to London, because it's worthwhile, it could be a magnific unforgettable experience.
