The Consecration of the New Ise Shrine by Sadahide (1807 - 1873)

Sadahide (1807 - 1873) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Consecration of the New Ise Shrine

Comments - Wonderful scene illustrating the consecration of the new Ise Shrine. Every twenty years, the shrine buildings at Ise are reconstructed as part of the Shinto belief in the impermanence of all things and the death and renewal of nature. A special ceremony takes place to consecrate the new structures, with priests and noblemen in attendance for the solemn occasion. The procession passes into the shrine at left, holding tall cloth walls supported by poles, while the guests bow respectfully in the courtyard. A Shinto priest lights a bonfire at right, and the famous Wedded Rocks can be seen in the landscape above. A beautifully printed design from a small group of Taisho era reprints by Otsukakogeisha Co., Ltd., of Kyoto, which began publishing in 1919.
