81. Moon of the Red Cliffs (Sekiheki no tsuki)

Su Shi was a scholar, calligrapher, poet, and statesman of the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD), who was often at odds with his political masters, and was exiled more than once. It was during his first exile (1080-1086) that he took some friends on a nightly boat trip to the Red Cliffs on the Yangtze River, and composed one of the most famous poems of Chinese literature. It is of course no coincidence that the Red Cliffs - as mentioned in print #3 -were also the location of a famous battle during the Three Kingdom Era (184280 AD). (printed 1889)
