Tiny Trio: Compassion, Equanimity and Kindness
Mokuhanga woodblocks and watercolor inks
6x12 on 9x15 in paper

Tiny Trio is three of my Little Buddhas series and includes Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Shakyamuni Buddha, the embodiment of Equanimity, and White Tara, who is represents Loving-Kindness. I hand carved 3 mokuhanga woodblocks. They are small, just 4x6 inches and quite difficult to carve. I wanted to challenge myself to work smaller.

Mokuhanga is the traditional Japanese style of woodblock prints. The blocks are printed onto Japanese Kozo or mulberry paper by hand rubbing with a bamboo baren. The inks used are sumi and watercolor inks. Mokuhanga is a labor-intensive old school printmaking practice. I hand carved and hand painted this Tiny Tara.
