More about this print: Wu Gang (Gobetsu in japanese) of the Han Dynasty studied Taoist magical practices, but abused his power. As a punishment, he was forced eternally to cut the cassia trees on the moon. As soon as he cut them, they grew back again. Stevenson* shows a print in which Wu Gang wears a green, rather than a blue tunic.
