Shishir Bhattacharjee (b.1960) is a painter based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Throughout his career, the artist has continued depicting the reality of Bangladesh society where power is split and fought over between politicians and the army, and its varying levels of injustice. The central figure of the work appears to be a politician surrounded by disembodied hands, while the lady with a lotus flower is said to represent the land of Bengal. #fukuokaartmuseum #shishirbhattacharjee #dhaka @fukuoka_asian_art_museum

Dejima was a man-made island in the port of Nagasaki, constructed in 1636 to segregate Portuguese residents from the Japanese population and control their missionary activities. A few years later, the Portuguese were expelled from Japan, and the Dutch Trading Station, formerly located in Hirado, was moved to Dejima. The Dutch were restricted to Dejima during Japan's two centuries of isolation as the only remaining Westerners allowed in the country. #dejima #nagasaki #japan
