Boy's Day - 6

Hiroto Norikane


Very peace-loving etching "Boy's Day -6 is by Hiroto Norikane. This is special sheet number 1 of 100. When I see this print, I feel like I jump into peaceful mountain village, feel fresh air and very quiet environment which is very pretty and noiseless. Maybe just birds singing. In this we see "Koinobori" carp shaped flag. "Koi nobori" are most often seen on "Tango-no-Sekku" (Boy's Festival) when a carp is flown for each son in the family, a very large one for the eldest, the others ranging down in size. Colors are hand-applied finely. This is one of very popular "Boy's day" series.
