The Eye (13)

Kiyoshi Saito


This magnificent print "Me (13)" (The Eye - 13) is by Kiyoshi Saito. Striking bold colors. The lines portray wonderful contrast and also adds sophisticated structure and definition to this print. This print is really hard to find. Intricate yet bold wood grain detail truly complements the body of the mother cat.
