Product details

Utagawa Kuniyoshi loved cats. Many of his works depict cats, whether they are tumbling in the background of an interior scene or spelling out kanji with their own stretching, curling bodies. These cats derive from one of his works.

Utagawa Kuniyoshi was a master of ukiyo-e in the early half of the 19th century.
Ukiyo-e is a style of woodblock prints and paintings more-or-less synonymous with the Edo period of Japan. The term directly translates to "pictures of the floating world"; in other words, you'll see a lot of beautiful, entertainment-focused prints and paintings of this genre. A famous example of ukiyo-e is Hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa (1831). These prints even became popular in Europe and America following the opening of Japanese trade to the outside world.

Each packet includes two cat magnets, one of each style.
