New Work 2015
Ganesha is the elephant-headed remover of obstacles. I think his mouse, Moushika, is pretty cute :)
I cut 5 woodblocks for this Ganesha, a separate block for each color.
I hand pull each Moku Hanga print. There are slight variations in color.
Moku Hanga is a labor-intensive traditional Japanese woodblock technique. The woodblocks are hand carved, and hand rubbed using a barren onto fine mulberry paper.
