'Hatsuhana doing penance under the Tonosawa waterfall', c.1841-42 is a woodblock by Utagawa Kuniyoshi. As the story goes, Hatsuhana was a very virtuous woman. Here she is depicted doing penance under the Tonozawa waterfall for the cure of her son’s knee – but the hardship of the penance proved too much for her and she died. However, her son was miraculously cured. He sought revenge, and killed his arch-enemy near the waterfall. #arteesamor #historyofart #arthistory #arte #japaneseartist #japaneseart #japan an #painter #woodblockprint #woodblock #print #illustration #penance #hatsuhana #legend #art #artwork #artgallery #artlovers #waterfall #ukiyoe #ukiyoeart
