Yellow ochre pigment. Lit. yellow earth. Made from earth containing hydrated ferric oxide (goethite FeO.OH or limonite Fe2O3.H2O) often mixed with quartz or clay minerals. The colour can vary from a light yellow to brown depending on the quantity of hydrated ferric oxide. A cheaply available, durable, strong colorant, oudo is commonly found in ancient decorated tombs such as the Ouzuka Kofun ‰¤’ˌÕ­ in Fukuoka prefecture (probably late 6c), and murals like those in Houryuuji *Kondou –@—²Ž›‹à“°. It is still used today as a mineral pigment for Japanese painting *nihonga “ú–{‰æ (see *iwa-enogu ŠâŠG‹ï). Oudo can be heated to give a red pigment called *bengara •Ù•¿.
