Japanese Beauty

18 x 40 cm

The original image of this work is a picture that the artist found on a Chinese website, which shows the moment a Japanese soldier kills a white prisoner of war. It is often posted on non-Japanese websites, but rarely seen on Japanese websites.


In Japan, less is said about the history of the Empire of Japan, which refers to its perpetration outside the country, and more is said about the air raids and atomic bombings suffered by mainland Japan. This shows that there are differences in the content of history being told depending on culture and country.
