Aloha Medicine Buddha
Mokuhanga woodblocks with sumi and watercolor inks

Medicine Buddha is invoked for physical, mental and emotional healing. He is surrounded by Hawaiian hibiscus flowers for an Aloha feeling. I revisited this woodblock, refining the carving and carving 2 more color blocks. My woodblock carving and printing skills have improved over the past 7 years. I always liked this Medicine Buddha and decided to revise some of my favorite early blocks. Aloha Medicine Buddha is a hand carved and hand pulled woodblock.

Mokuhanga is the traditional Japanese style of woodblock prints. 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.
