Kanzeon Bosatsu Statue by Kagaku Murakami (1888 - 1939)

Original Kagaku Murakami (1888 - 1939) Japanese Woodblock Print
Kanzeon Bosatsu Statue

Fuji Arts’ special acquisition from Momose - This print is from a beautiful group of limited edition prints recently acquired from the archives of the publisher, The Momose Print Company of Tokyo. We purchased the entire balance of the publisher’s limited-edition inventory of all designs. They are only available on the secondary market and have become increasingly difficult to find. The prints were originally offered in a shin-hanga limited edition promotion from Momose. The Shinsui and Kaburagi beauties were sold for 280,000 yen each (approx. $2,750).

Comments - Interesting large-format image of a statue of the Buddhist deity. From the title of the work, the figure could be Kanzeon (or Kannon), or possibly a sculpture of a bosatsu or boddhisattva at the Kanzeon Shrine, which houses a number of famous statues. She sits on a lotus blossom, a flower in her hand. Flames in delicate line work surround the figure. Kagaku Murakami was a Japanese painter best known for his Buddhist subjects. This print comes from a posthumous limited edition of woodblocks published by Momose based on an earlier painting by the artist. The edition was limited to 300.

Artist - Kagaku Murakami (1888 - 1939)
Image Size - 21" x 12 1/4" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Toning at edges. Please note, due to the size, this print may be shipped rolled. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
