Imagenes del Infierno, “Luna” por Ito Seiyu




Before the war in Shimabara*, many Christians were persecuted. Lord Matsukura Shigenaga was a sexual pervert. He captured women, committed atrocious torture, and then threw them into the snake valley at the corner of Mount Unzen.

The crescent moon shines on dead bodies, where poisonous snakes slither and wolves feast on human flesh. What is a real inferno, if this picture doesn’t show it?

*Referring to Shimabara no ran (the Shimabara Rebellion), which was a major uprising in southwestern Japan in the 17th century.
