Description

Our exquisite print design features a detail from a Japanese painted handscroll (Kamakura period, 11851333) in the Museums collection, which illustrates episodes taken from chapter 25, the Universal Gate chapter, of the Lotus Sutra. This popular text describes the manifold mercies of the compassionate bodhisattva Kannon, the most beloved bodhisattva in East Asia. Although the compositions and many motifs of this version reflect Chinese pictorial traditions, it is clear that the artist inventively incorporated native Japanese (yamato-e) elements.

Gicle print on archival paper. Mounted in a gold gilded wood frame. Includes hardware for hanging. 22''H x 31''W.
