"Caprichos de Yemanja" (Vagaries of Yemanja) is a single-leaf woodcut or xilograph by Brazilian artist Zorabia Betiol. It is numbered 2214/4000 and it was done with the original wood blocks. Edition of 4000 by "Club del Grabado de Montevideo", Uruguay. This print is NOT signed but it is an original xilograph. Only the first ones were usually signed by the author.

In excellent condition. There is a small folding line in the upper right corner that will be covered when it is framed.

Size: Aprox. 10.5 " by 15.7"

Date: December 1973

Woodcut—occasionally known as xylography—is a relief printing artistic technique in printmaking in which an image is carved into the surface of a block of wood, with the printing parts remaining level with the surface while the non-printing parts are removed, typically with gouges. The areas to show 'white' are cut away with a knife or chisel, leaving the characters or image to show in 'black' at the original surface level. The block is cut along the grain of the wood (unlike wood engraving where the block is cut in the end-grain). The surface is covered with ink by rolling over the surface with an ink-covered roller (brayer), leaving ink upon the flat surface but not in the non-printing areas.
