Garuda is a mythical golden eagle found in both Hindu and Buddhist tradition. Garudas devour serpents and symbolize protection against illness and malevolent forces.

Mokuhanga is the traditional Japanese style of woodblock prints. Typically 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. Mokuhanga is a labor-intensive old school printmaking practice. I hand painted this Garuda.
