1890's. Kakubeijishi (角兵衛獅子, also: Kakubeejishi) are acrobatics performed on the street by young boys who did handstands, somersaults and the like, either alone or with their partners. In this photo, three children perform a combination act. The acrobatics were accompanied by drums, usually played by an adult leader. Kakubeijishi has its roots in the province of Echigo (now in Niigata Prefecture).

Amrita Sher-Gil. Born in Budapest in 1913, she was the daughter of a Sikh aristocrat father and an upper-class Hungarian mother. Trained in the finest schools of art in Europe, Amrita returned to India to proclaim: "Europe belongs to Picasso, Matisse, Braque and many others.....India belongs only to me".
