Gifu Nagaragawa Cormorant Fishing by Hiyoshi Mamoru (active circa 1950s)

Original Hiyoshi Mamoru (active circa 1950s) Japanese Woodblock Print
Gifu Nagaragawa Cormorant Fishing

Comments - Great image of cormorant fishing on the Nagara River in Gifu City, a traditional method still in practice today. Bright fires in hanging baskets lure fish to the surface, then cormorants tied to strings are released. A band around their necks prevents the birds from swallowing any fish they catch, which the fishermen then collect. Other boats carry visitors to watch the fishing. A bold and colorful image of this traditional way of fishing. Published by Kyoto Hanga-in.

Artist - Hiyoshi Mamoru (active circa 1950s)
Image Size - 10 1/2" x 15 1/2" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Paper remnants on reverse at top edge from previous mounting. Slight toning. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
