This process is called Moku hanga the Japanese term for woodblock print (moku means wood and hanga means print). Woodblock printing was brought to Japan in the 8th century by Buddhists from China and was first used to reproduce religious texts. This work has been created with three hand carved woodblocks, using water based pigments and hand printed with a baren onto Japanese Mulberry paper.
Each print is 16cm H x 22 cm W.
