Nagin, a female naga, in Buddhist teachings nagas protect against illness and malevolent energy, heal the land and reveal hidden teachings.

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. Moku hanga is a labor-intensive old school printmaking practice.For this Naga I hand painted the original woodblock print.
