#7 Dowa

Overview

The theme is “Dowa (fairly tales)”. Dowa is a term to describe stories for children such as folk tales, legends, myths, allegories, etc. In Japan, there are various Dowa, and sometimes it is called Mukashi-banashi (old tale) or Warabe-monogatari (children’s story). Dowa is usually shown in picture books or picture-story show, but it can also be passed by word of mouth. Some folk tales and legends have been modified through time to become suitable for children. There are also many allegories that have used animals to teach moral lessons and common sense. This time, five visual arts were created based on Dowa.
