Description: Ayumi Shiba is one of the young ladies working at Mokuhankan in Tokyo, in multiple capacities: she works in the shop helping explain the prints to visitors; she hosts the Print Parties; and she works as a staff printer, creating work to be sold to customers and subscribers.

But she also moonlights ... as a modern printmaker, and this print is one of her creations - from concept, through design, and all the carving and printing ... herself.

Shiba-san's comments on this print: "Her life ended in sadness, because everybody said that she was ugly. She really wanted to become beautiful.

"Her strong regrets caused her to come back, and when she saw her body shining in the moonlight, her white bones looked so beautiful. "I really am very beautiful ...", she realised at last that she had real beauty inside herself.

"Laughing away all her previous cares, she could say, "Now I am totally free! I will live my real life full of happiness ..."
