Original Ukiyo-e Animal Print - Waiting for The Rain
This collection combines traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e art styles with modern ones, giving it a fun and unique twist.
Based on traditional Ukiyo-e style paintings. The Japanese poem is taken from the oldest collection of Japanese poetry book titled Man'yōshū and is written by Ishikawa no Iratsume.Poem One:
Japanese: 吾を待つと 君が濡れけむ あしひきの やまのしづくにならましものを
English translation: I would like to be the mountain rain which made you wet whilst waiting for me.
Due to the age of the poem, it is hard to produce a literal translation in English. It is about two lovers, the man is waiting on a hill in the rain whilst the woman wishes she were the rain falling on him so they could be together.
