Ando Hiroshige was born under the name of Ando Tokutaro. He was born in Edo (Tokyo) as the son of aÂ samurai andÂ fireman. At the age of twelve, both his parents died. Two years later, in 1811, the young Hiroshige received a chance to join the famous Utagawa painting school. At that time, theÂ ukiyo-e master Toyohiro Utagawa was the head of the studio. In 1812 he was formally allowed to take the name Utagawa. From then on he called himselfÂ Utagawa Hiroshige. In the ukiyo-e literature he is usually referenced as Hiroshige Ando.
The art of wood-block colour printing may be said to have enjoyed its finest period during the Edo Period, for it is then that one finds the flowering of this peculiar art of Japan. Again, it may not be in error to state that since the Edo Period there has been a retrogression rather than an advance in this art. We cannot help observing that those artists who have followed the style of wood-block printing developed during the Edo Period have more and more gradually, even from before and through the Meiji and Taisho Eras, fallen short of the achievements of that period. No one can deny that there has been continued copying but with the imitations rather poor comparatively. A renaissance is needed by which the creative art of the present period may bring new vitality and power to the wood-block colour print. Imitation must yield to the new creative power grafted on to the foundations so well laid during the Edo Period.

(By the way, about your question pertaining to blood transfusion and tattoos and piercings, I failed to mention that the primary reason why they don’t want us is because of the high incidence/probable history of hepatitis C in our demographic.Â So there you are.Â Thanks for the tat.Â It has become a dope conversation-starter from the NAIA down to our neighborhood grocer here in the US.Â My son loves it, too.Â Till me meet again.Â Maurag ka, Padi!)
Known for its bright colors. The Siamese fighting fish (Betta splendens), also known as the betta (particularly in the US) and simply as the fighter, is a popular species of freshwater aquarium fish. The name of the genus is derived from ikan bettah, taken from a local dialect of Thailand. Â The wild ancestors of this fish are native to the rice paddies of Thailand and Cambodia and are called pla-kad or trey krem (“Fighting Fish”) in Thai.Â Females often flare their gills at other females, especially when setting up a pecking order.Â Usually, if multiple male bettas are placed together, they will try to kill each other. However, different bettas have different personalities. Certain individuals are a lot more aggresive than other bettas, and vice-versa.Â Siamese fighting fish will even respond aggressively to their own reflections in a mirror; use of a mirror avoids the risk of physical damage inherent in actual conflict, although it can lead to stress in some individuals.Â They are quite curious and will watch humans going about their business nearby.Â
