- Ohara no Hadaka Matsuri (Ohara Hadaka Festival, Chiba) -

Masaaki Tanaka


The remarkable silkscreen print 'Ohara no Hadaka Matsuri' (Ohara Hadaka Festival, Chiba) is by Masaaki Tanaka (b. 1947). This print captures the vibrant energy of a festival held in the sea in Chiba Prefecture, Japan. The waves are depicted as fish scales, and the bold colors create a modern and dynamic image. The sheet number, Japanese title, and artist's signature are hand-signed on the bottom margin.

The Ohara Hadaka Festival is a traditional autumn celebration that unites the entire community. It is held to pray for a bountiful harvest and a successful fishing season, with more than a dozen mikoshi, or portable shrines, ceremoniously carried into the sea at once. The mikoshi are cast into the sea with bravery and heroism, symbolizing the community's devotion and unity.
