Tomorrow we’ll have a brand new article on the Painted Churches of Moldavia. Stay tuned!

Painted scroll. Mid-18th century, Japan, by artist Ito Jakuchu. In 1765 the artist gave this and other paintings to the Shokokuji Monastery in Kyoto and then they were given to the Imperial Household in 1889.

casanova, ray, rhea

Casanova: ideally ascetic nun in a medieval monastery painting icons but that’s not gonna happen so I guess if we were talking really living the dream, I’d be an artist?? Sell my watercolours for money and all that.

Rhea: others, 100%. I’m terrible at standing up for myself.

Aaaand Ray is done thanks 😁
