A collaboration of master calligrapher, Shinko Tanaka, and Gyotaku print by Dwight Hwang of a 'Tora Fugu' or 'TIGER BLOWFISH'.

The calligraphy reads, "以毒制毒" which means to 'counter poison with poison' or in western terms, 'fight fire with fire'. The calligraphy in the left hand corner is the name of the fish in fancy cursive.

Makes a great gift for that special angler, nature lover or any one who loves fish and appreciates this unique Japanese art form. The tiger blowfish is the famous, or infamous, Japanese delicacy that can be fatal if prepared incorrectly. A very potent toxin is found inside its innards. There is also a mild toxin in the skin which caused a very distinct numbing of my fingers when I was printing this fish. After making about 15 rubbings, I decided to stop as my finger tips were tingly and numb.

Faithful to the original Japanese style of creating memorable prints for the avid fisherman; simple and monochromatic. Handsome and would be VERY stunning behind a glass frame on any wall of ones home or office.

This particular image (Tiger Blowfish) has been reproduced on a 12x18 professional grade, high quality photo paper.

The two red stamps represent Shinko's name (top) as well as my name (bottom).
Photos of the framed sample is simply to show you what it would look like behind glass!
Frame is not included.
Prints will ship first class via tubes for protection!
