New Work 2015
White Tara represents wisdom and compassion. She is the female Buddha. I have her surrounded by Hawaiian hibiscus flowers in this 2 color Moku Hanga woodblock.
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.
