'Golden Pavilion in Snow' Woodblock Print
This beautiful print features the Golden Pavilion, a Zen temple that is one of Kyoto's most famous ancient landmarks. The quiet colors and soft snow imbue this scene with serenity.
This design was originally created by Kawase Hasui in the early 1900s. Traditional printmaker Scott Taylor has reproduced the original design with a faithful, artistic touch. All these gradations and subtle colors are not easy to print!
Each print is numbered.
This design requires several individual impressions to achieve a full range of color. Stephen uses the finest quality of yamazakura (mountain cherry) to carve his printing blocks. The wood is capable of holding a very fine level of delicacy – every last detail is printed by the wood left standing, after the rest has been cut away.
This is a fairly large print, measuring 7.5 x 10.75 inches.
