Hidezô contributed to the Japanese war propaganda effort in
January 1942 with this illustration entitled "Horse's Legs, Badger's
Tail." It draws on folktale motifs involving the shape-shifting
abilities of mischieveous animals. Pulling up the priestly clothing
of Roosevelt and Churchill, Japanese planes reveal the "true nature"
of each: a cloven-hoofed horse clothed in money and a cunning badger
clothed in death.
