Aloha Medicine Buddha
Mokuhanga woodblocks hand rubbed onto mulberry paper

2018

Hand carved and hand pulled woodblock.
Medicine Buddha is invoked for physical, mental and emotional healing. He is surrounded by Hawaiian hibiscus flowers for an Aloha feeling.

Mokuhanga is the traditional Japanese style of woodblock prints. A separate block is hand carved for each color used. The blocks are printed onto Japanese Kozo or mulberry paper by hand rubbing with a barren. The inks used are sumie and watercolor inks. Moku hanga is a labor-intensive old school printmaking practice. I hand-colored this Buddha.
