Ink/tinta: Daniel Smith Relief black
A large number of Baren printmakers from around the world are involved in a fund raising for the victims of the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami. The prints are available for purchase here. This is mine. In planning this print I wanted it to be symbolic of hope for Japan rather than dwell on the tragedy of the recent earthquake and tsunami. The black fan symbolizes the honor of the Japanese people, the cranes stand for hope and tranquility, and the cherry blossoms for the eternal beauty of nature.
