Those were actually xenophobic propaganda designed to evoke giggles. The gist of it was "we beat the Mongols twice using divine wind, now we'll blow the Americans right back to the kingdom of amelika!"

I did my dissertation on humourous Japanese art during this period. There's so much material.

 :?: :!:

From what I read about them is that they were made by several unknown artists during the Edo period;


Xenophobic propaganda?
You mean that they were actually made by foreigners?

Europeans aren't the only xenophobes.

Well I found it very hard to find any info on the authors.

The images themselves were digitalized by the Waseda University;

The authors remained anonymous, as did all but a couple of woodblock printers (allowed them to escape scandal or political controversy in their work). But it's fair to assume they were made in Japan by Japanese artists.

Although van Gogh and Monet (and the entire Art Nouveau movement) incorporated elements of Ukiyo-e into their prints, nobody outside the archipelago ever copied the style or techniques for themselves since they just couldn't be bothered.

Similarly, the Japanese liked some of the techniques used by Dutch painters, but never bothered replicating them.

So why are they not farting on westerners then? Too edgy perhaps?

They are, it's just that the artist hasn't made it as blindingly obvious as other artists who would give them bulging blue eyes and ragged red hair. They're mostly farting at other Japanese people though.

Looks like a ornate flail attached to a padded cushion.
