Tachibana Armor with Chrysanthemum-Stream Motif and Sutra Scroll of Universal Gate Chapter Surimono by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Tachibana Armor with Chrysanthemum-Stream Motif and Sutra Scroll of Universal Gate Chapter Surimono

Surimono - Surimono are an exclusive subcategory of Japanese woodblock prints. Poetry clubs commissioned these designs for distribution to a small audience of members, most often as New Year's greetings. These privately published images included a wonderful range of subjects and lavish printing techniques such as embossing, burnishing, and metallic pigments. Since surimono were not sold commercially, the print runs were very small and original Edo era surimono are incredibly rare in the market today. These fine quality suriomono reprints offer a great way to collect these classic designs at an affordable price.

Comments - Attractive surimono print of samurai armor on a wooden stand. The chest plate features the chrysanthemum and stream crest of the Tachibana Clan. On a nearby table, an arrow pierces a scroll illustrating the "Universal Gate" chapter of the Lotus Sutra. Wonderful detail.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 8" x 7"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Slight toning and soiling, a few creases and stains. Please see photos for details.
