Should we start a thread about cartoon of the rikishi in the ozumo section?

While being a big fan of the AsaChan ozumo corner, I completely missed the chances to get the free badges (and fans) they distribute each basho at the TBS broadcast booth. Mania fans like MyYetSetLife likely have complete sets

the recent set was this, yokozuna with attendants

I post the rest as overview, first recent designs of a character, then older ones

What did inspire this from Degas (and makes it sumo art related)?

Most of the impressionists and their associated artists were interested in Japanese art, particularly in Hokusai's work, and he painted sumo wrestlers.  Manet possessed a woodcut of a sumo wrestler, which can be seen in the background of his portrait of Zola below.   The interest was two-way.  Japanese artists started experimenting with perspective through their interest in Western art.

Image result for degas portrait of manet

You might wonder what this has to do with sumo - but even more about what the person thought that fabricated the English title: Mountains and Seas Viewed as Wrestlers in a Sumo Tournament (acceptable would be: sumo styled mountain and sea views)

I'd settle for: Mountains and Sea seen as Sumo (scene)

山海見立相撲 Sankai Mitate Sumo - this one is 備前田ノ口 Bizen-Tanokuchi

AN00835370_001_l.jpg

the collection of all 20 pics of the series of Hiroshige: http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/collection_online/search.aspx?searchText=Sankai+Mitate+Sumo&people=55588

And what is the sumo style view here ? The title is displayed on a gyoji gumbai frame (on the left upper corner)

http://ch.kanagawa-museum.jp/dm/ukiyoe/kanagawa/meisyo/d_meisyo15.html

We might see it as a joke from Hiroshige about a sumo frenzy: one can see sumo in everything - or is there some deeper truth in it ?
