Kanami Hano - Mujina

Mujina / むじな

Woodblock / 木版画
28h x 31.5w cm

In response to Lafcadio Hearn’s ‘Mujina’

Artist Statement
In Hearn’s Kwaidan, ‘Mujina’ appears to be the only frightening story that has a funny and positive tone. How charming it is that Mujina’s mischievous antics, which have nothing to do with death and grief, have been passed down through generations and transformed into a ghost story. For my print, I depicted Mujina stroking her face with her hand and revealing her eyeless face, using a charming egg-shaped outline.
