This is a Moku hanga wood block print of White Tara, the goddess of Wisdom and Compassion and is invoked for long life. She is surrounded by Hawaiian hibiscus flowers.

Moku Hanga is a labor-intensive traditional Japanese woodblock technique. The woodblocks are hand carved, and hand rubbed using sumie watercolor inks with a barren onto fine mulberry paper. Traditionally separate blocks are carved for each color.
