TOKYO, The Sumida Hokusai Museum
Hello Bird Lovers! You can fly on the wings of Hokusai’s birds to savor the delightful world that birds and human beings weave together, " The Hokusai Bird Park " in The Sumida Hokusai Museum Exhibition.
This exhibition provides an opportunity to appreciate the many birds that Hokusai and his students depicted and the avian designs they created. Imagine yourself in a bird park as you experience close at hand these creatures’ beauty and the superb artistry deployed in creating these works.
Bird lovers abound today. And the roots of the Japanese love of birds run deep: bird-shaped ceramics have been discovered dating from the Jōmon period (11,000 to 400 BCE)! When the Manyōshū, Japan’s first poetry anthology, was being compiled in the seventh and eighth centuries, birds were used to communicate both seasons and emotions. Hokusai himself continued that tradition, creating many works that depict birds.
