Utagawa Sadahide, "Dragon and Tigers" (Recut)
Pickup currently unavailable
A dramatic triptych by Utagawa Sadahide shows a dragon and two tigers in a mystical confrontation. When depicted together, dragons and tigers symbolize the Taoist duality of yin and yang. Dragons are said to produce clouds, while the roar of the tiger produces wind as a counterforce (note the subtle detailing in the background). Meticulously crafted from recut woodblocks and produced in a limited edition of 200, this woodblock print was crafted by one of Japan’s most important publishers: Uchida.
