Art Description

Painting: Oil on Wood.

Ciocio-san grips her father's Hara-Kiri knife while in the other a mirror, her son wrapped in the stars and strips as opposed to holding the flag, stands behind her, left for Pinkerton by Ciocio-san. There are seven stripes here to mirror the seven Hinomaru (circle of the sun) which contains seven Buddha symbolising the Ciocio-san's ancestors of her religion, rejected for Pinkerton's Christian God represented here in the crucifixion of Jesus.
