Tokuriki Tomikichirō – 徳力富吉郎 – (1902-1999) – Kōzan-ji Temple, Kyoto – 栂尾山高山寺

$200.00 CAD


The auspicious ancient symbolism in this piece depicting the grounds of Kōzan-ji Temple, Kyoto, is three-fold. A path is of course, the path of life. Autumn colours are, like cherry blossoms, wabi-sabi, and the lantern symbolizes illumination of the heart-mind. This woodblock print is on a shikishi board, meaning that it can either be framed, or mounted in a hanging scroll made for shikishi or tanzaku (woodblock printed, thick editions – very sturdy). Excellent condition. In original artisan, hand-made, washi paper folder with photo / bio page and original notes in Japanese. The final picture shows a different part of the same area.

Tomikichiro created prints from start to finish in his own workshop (Sōsaku-hanga), but also earned a living with Shin-hanga (collaborative efforts overseen by publishers). Born in Kyoto, he was a graduate of the School of Fine Arts and Crafts. He is fairly well known in the west. *Please click the top left corner of the picture a second time to enlarge it further.
