An illustrator who goes by the name Sparrows has been sharing a lovely series of imaginative GIFs. Each storybook animation features some form of magical realism where pelicans play scrabble, tattoos bloom from skin, or breakfasts appear to cook themselves. Sparrows tells us that she works professionally as an illustrator, but these brief standalone pieces are just ideas she wants to exist outside of her head. The snapshots appear to exist in the same little universe but aren’t meant to be part of a larger narrative.

Saidai-ji Eyo Hadaka Matsuri
|Hadaka Matsuri means, literally, "naked festival". The young men who participate are naked except for traditional white loincloths known as fundoshi. Sometimes the participants in Hadaka Matsuri immerse themselves in a river beforehand to purify themselves. Occasionally several semi-naked young men will carry a mikoshi, or portable shrine, in the form of a horse, rice bale, or sake barrel into the river with them.|

washed away in the cycle.
