Jason Sowing the Dragon's Teeth

Artist Unknown, Italy or France

A group of armed men struggles in a landscape while a helmeted female figure hovers on a cloud above them and points to a distant city that lies across an expanse of water. A man at the left with a green cuirass and cloth knotted about his waist and neck stands apart from the combatants and looks up toward the gesturing woman. Behind him appears a row of sword-wielding men locked in combat, with several casualties lying at their feet. On a hillock in the background a pair of oxen, an orange-gold colored sheep, and a winged dragon may be discerned.

Calligraphy: Watching Ducks on a Spring Morning

Nukina Kaioku

In this monumental scroll, Nukina Kaioku has brushed a Chinese poem of his own composition, on the enduring theme of nature as refreshment for the spirit. Note his masterful variation of thick and thin strokes, wet and dry ink, stately and rapid movement.

The verses may be tentatively rendered into English as follows:

Mandarin ducks enjoy the fresh water; their graceful forms glow as they pass through channels in the reeds.

Pushing beyond the thickets [to the open pond], they call to one another again and again in the dawn.

A crimson mist breaks through gaps in the glade, its glow warming hidden nests.

Waking up with nothing to do, [I came here] to playfully row among the spring waves.

(Tokushima, Shikoku, 1778 - 1863, Kyoto)

To the right, four animals - a donkey, goat, cat, and rooster - appear stacked upon one another in a barely sketched-in window. On the left side, four figures sit at what appears to be a meal in a dinning room, with a soup tureen and various dishes. The image is hastily sketched and few details are absolutely readable, other than basic shapes.
