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.
