The goon reading, so likely the initial borrowing. (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)

  2. drawing, sketch

Usage notesEdit

The kanji and (also pronounced e, but can also be pronounced as ga), both having the same meanings and on-readings, can be confusing. While is used to mean pictures in the "drawn" sense (for example, (さし)() (sashie), "illustration"), it can also refer to art in front of the speaker, such as (うき)()() (ukiyoe, ukiyo-e) or (まき)() (makie, sprinkled lacquer). refers to art by extension, for example, ()(ほん)() (nihonga, Japanese painting). Sometimes, both kanji can be interchanged, an example being (かげ)(), (かげ)() (kage-e, shadow play)
