◌  “Amerika”

11 August 2009

Amerika (America) by Utagawa Hiroshige III (a successor of the guy we usually mean when we say Hiroshige). Nichibunken-sponsored Edo print specialists say this is a woman, representating America, riding sidesaddle on a horse in a snowy landscape. Well, obviously. America. Feathered headdresses, et cetera. America.
