Poster with two black crows sitting on a branch after a Japanese woodblock print by Ohara Koson.
Black crows are common in Asia and Europe. Like many other birds, they have made the move from the countryside to larger cities, where it is easy to find leftover food and places to nest. In some Japanese cities the number of crows have increased to a level where some consider it to be an invasion.
This particular pair of crows have been sitting on the branch since Ohara Koson designed the woodblock print back in 1927. The print has an almost cartoon-like appearance and a rather modern visual style, even though it is created in line with the same tradition as the rest of Koson’s oeuvre.
