An experimentation with Gyotaku made images.

Gyotaku is a Japanese antique technique applied to represent fishes from fishermen at markets. Since the vast majority was illiterate, the best way to tells what was available was via pictures. Gyotaku consists in covering a fish with ink than overylay a particular kind of paper so that it can absorb the main details of the fish itself.
