Description: Shaka Goichidaiki Zue is the storybook written by Yamada Isai with illustrations by Katsushika Hokusai, published in Edo (Tokyo), Kyoto, and Osaka in 1845, which consists of 6 volumes and 55 episodes in the life of Shaka (Buddah).
In such a life story of Shaka, some episodes since his birth until his spiritual awakening are usually emphasized. In this version, however, many pages are distinctively spared for the rest of his life. Hokusai has made 35 illustrations for 27 episodes, and 23 of those are possively represented as new iconographies in Shaka's biography, inspired by various pictorial resources, while other 12 scenes originate in the former or traditional ones of these subjects. He might have invented remarkably conspicuous and impressive images for the well-known tale in his age through his skillful technique and inexhaustible imagination.
