About the Artwork:

Step into the captivating world of traditional Japanese life
with 'Cormorant Fishing' by Kawase Hasui, a woodblock print from 1930. This
artwork transports you to a serene river scene, where fishermen employ
cormorant birds to assist in their ancient fishing technique where the
cormorants swallow small fish, which are attracted by the torch fire. A rope
attached to a collar on the cormorant's neck prevents the fish from going
further down into the cormorant's neck. Later, the fishermen make the birds
regurgitate the captured fish. The delicate ripples of the water and the
tranquility of the night are masterfully captured, highlighting Hasui's ability
to convey both the beauty of nature and the rich cultural traditions of Japan.
Against a backdrop of deep, starlit indigo, the illuminated lanterns create a
mesmerizing interplay of light and shadow. 'Cormorant Fishing' serves as a
testament to the artist's prowess in capturing the essence of everyday life, inviting
you to experience the harmony between humanity and nature that is intrinsic to
Japanese culture
