Shades of Heian

Shuji Wako


Amazing lithograph print "SHADES OF HEIAN" is by Shuji Wako (1953 - ). This print is extremely large in size; 40 and 1/4 x 29 and 3/4 inches (102 x 75.5 cm). His artwork shows a classic Japanese motif as depicted in this print. Folded Origami crane and Temari (Japanese traditional ball) are placed on the beautifully draped Kimono fabric. This print is the perfect representation of Japanese beauty.  The Heian period is regarded as one of the greatest periods of artistic and cultural development in Japan.  Limited edition size is only 35 sheets.

Temari (手毬)

Temari is a toy which existed since the Edo period; in the beginning, it was made by merely winding threads around a ball, but since around the end of the 16th century, beautiful threads were geometrically wound around a spherical body, which was more elastic because of the zenmai cotton (cotton made of flowering fern) used.
