Figure 9 'Mary as patroness of the Japanese martyrs'. This silk painting by the early twentieth-century Japanese artist, Lukas Hasegawa, reflects the emphasis on the Virgin in the underground church in Japan. Her features and dress have here been adapted to Japan, while the martyred Japanese Christians are visible on the background landscape.
