Crushing yet visually brilliant caricature relating to the Sino-Japanese War. Goton Juton (Five Pigs to Ten Pigs). Escher-like composition of five Chinese soldiers that combine to form ten different bodies. The bodies bear the name of a city or battle area during the Sino-Japanese War. For instance, at top, the sirt reads Taiwan, and at left, Sea of China. The title also reads Yoromushi Korokoro, or Tumbling Weaklings.
