The cover of Prince of Cats, my deconstruction of the Romantic Tragedy meta narrative in Romeo and Juliet, reference two works that greatly influenced the work, the theatrical poster for Okamoto Kihachi’s Sword of Doom (1966) and Tadanori Yokoo’s Ballad Dedicated To An Amputated Little Finger (1967).

Ballad Dedicated To An Amputated Little Finger is a silk screen poster that prominently features the sacrifice required of a Yakuza who wishes to leave the life.

Sword of Doom or Dai-bosatsu tōge (大菩薩峠) tells the story of a youth who follows a path of violent dedication to swordsmanship towards enlightenment or madness.
