Mokuhanga Woodblock print 12" X 16"
Medicine Buddha is invoked for physical, mental and emotional healing. The image is set in Colorado and he is attended by a mountain bluebird. Gold metallic powder is mixed in with the watercolor inks to make this Buddha more luminous. These original images are hand carved and hand pulled mokuhanga woodblock prints. Mokuhanga is the Japanese method of woodblock printing.
About the Artist:
Faith Stone has a background in traditional Tibetan thangka painting and wrote the book, Drawing Buddhas, and BodhiSattvas. Since studying Mokuhanga with Hiroki Morinoue, she became very interested in using Mokuhanga woodblocks to create Buddhas.
She then adds Shiko Munakata’s technique of water-coloring the wood block from the back to keep the blacks black but infuse the woodblock print with colors. She believes the real joy of making Buddhas and Bodhisattvas is creating a space for the Buddha or deity to reside.
