    I never knew that Edo period natural history art used such similar styles as the European 19th century naturalists (Haeckel, etc.). Thanks for opening my eyes to a school that was completely unknown to me!

    When they talked about this squid, then let on that this squid was now pickled in the blue vat behind them, it reminded me of going to the Forestry Building in Portland when I was a kid, and seeing the exhibits of the oldest trees they’d CUT DOWN.
