Spirit of the Forest by olivier2046 Spirit of the Forest by olivier2046

Spirit of the Forest - handmade linocut print

In the woods, we often meet Jizô, a small stone figure hidden behind the trees.
Sometimes alone, sometimes in a group. Occassionally naked, often wearing decorated fabrics.
The villagers take care of him: Jizô is the guardian of children.

Original hand-printed linocut. 7 colors layers printed on a beautiful and thin Japanese paper. This print was made using a baren – a traditional Japanese tool – and 5 hand-carved linoleum plates.
Every print is unique, with its own subtle variations.

I love how the pattern of the clothing stands out compared to the rest of the forest. It's really a lovely print.
