    Sumo Art Site

    so, a while ago I was trying to help an artist, friend of mine, and ordered him two sumo paintings, then I love it so much that I started to ordering more, from other artists also, and started a project of sumo artwork, the site is almost up, but not yet. Meanwhile I got an online shop and I have there limited editions prints and other merch probably will come, my plan is to use that income to just keep increasing the collection and put some sumo artwork out there. here's one I particularly like: here's the link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SumoArtSite if by any chance someone wants to acquire something, here's a 20% coupon discount: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SumoArtSite?coupon=SMFRM Hope you guys enjoy it! ps: all the photos were cleared from copyright for this project

    might have to do with this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuji-in Significance of the number nine[edit] Why the number nine is used has also been of concern to some. The number nine is seen in Taoist divination as the perfect number for yang/yo, the “bright side” when determining the individual hexagram lines according to the I-ching (Book of Changes). Some have suggested that the number nine refers to the nine planets, that the Taoist believe directly influence human destiny, or to the seven stars of the Big Dipper (Northern Seven Stars) plus the two attendant/guardian stars which Taoist believe is the gateway to heaven, and which each star is a Taoist deity. The Imperial Palace had nine halls, the celestial sphere has nine divisions, both in Buddhism and Taoism, heaven is 'nine enclosures' (chiu ch'ung). The nine submandalas of the Vajradhãtu-mandala correspond to the imperial city of Ch'ang-an. (Waterhouse, 1996) maybe it's the Big Dipper and Little Dipper https://earthsky.org/?p=3588 plus 2 attendants for each one... ok, more info from: The Lore of the Japanese Fan Here's a primitive collage I made of the 2 constellations, in this image the gunbai is upside down and it fits better: more info about BIg dipper little dipper constellations worship: https://japanesemythology.wordpress.com/2013/01/22/big-dipper-cult-and-myoken-worship-in-japan/ http://eos.kokugakuin.ac.jp/modules/xwords/entry.php?entryID=794

    thanks! What do you think these "constellations" mean? I think this is around 18th century
