One of our creative themes is to draw any event in the world with sumi-e.
So this time, Ｗe created the theme of Mexican Day of the Dead held on November 1st and 2nd.
I challenged to draw Sugar Skull named “CALAVERA”, the symbol of the Day of the Dead by SUMI-e.
I drew many kinds of flowers, rose, spring orchid, lotus, cherry blossom, chrysanthemum,Pine, bamboo and plum.
I tried to design sculls with flowers that is familiar in Sumi-e.
lotus, cherry blossom, pine, plum, bamboo and grave.
Day of the dead in Japan
In Japan, there is an event called “Obon” like the Day of the dead in the middle of August.
That day is not a national holiday, but most Japanese are resting and preparing to welcome the deceased. And then go to the grave.
An event called Bon Odori is held throughout Japan.
The feeling that Mexican people welcome their deceased brightly and happily is very nice.
When I watched the movie “coco” on the subject of this day, I cried messed up. lol.
It is common throughout the world to value a feeling in memory of the deceased.
Who do you remember that day?
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day of the dead.
