Andō Hiroshige – 安藤 広重 (1797-1858) – Chrysanthemum & Butterflies – 菊とチョウ


Hiroshige was one of the most prolific artists in Japanese history. Since ancient times, the Japanese have considered kachō-ga (or kachō-e) an elegant expression of nature through art. The pieces also contain ancient symbolism. Here, the chrysanthemum is auspicious for cleansing. It is also the official seal of the Imperial Household. A butterfly is good luck for love and affection. Publisher: Oedo Mokuhansha. High quality. Made in the exact traditional manner as the original.
