Viewing the Statue of Jizo-bosatsu at Hashiba  by Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861)

Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Viewing the Statue of Jizo-bosatsu at Hashiba
Series; The Eastern Capital

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.

Viewing the Statue of Jizo-bosatsu at Hashiba - Terrific image of a family stopping to view the statue of Jizo Bosatsu, one of Japan's most beloved Buddhist deities, along a roadside. The father points at the imposing sculpture with his pipe as his wife looks up, their young son trailing behind holding the end of a white sash. A grove of tall pine trees form an impressive backdrop for the statue, with clouds floating across the deep blue sky. A lovely Kuniyoshi design, rarely seen in reprint.

Image Size - 9 1/2" x 14 1/4" + margins as shown
