Limited Edition, high quality reproduction, gyotaku print of a BROCADED CARP, or better known to most as "KOI", carefully printed from the top as this is how most of us view these majestic creatures. The Japanese Koi is one of the most celebrated fish for their character and beauty.

Gyotaku is the traditional Japanese alternative to Taxidermy that began several hundred years ago by a ingenious calligrapher. Meant as a way to record a proud catch for fishermen, it is also a stunning art form. All of my prints are done in the old, traditional "direct" method where the ink/pigments are applied directly onto the fish and then covered with paper to produce an exact, mirror image of the specimen. An incredible lack of control that can produce exquisite delicacy.

This particular image (nishiki goi) has been reproduced on a 12x20 Sunset Velvet Rag (315 GSM, 20 MIL) fine art paper, Giclee print, with a certificate of authenticity attached to the back of the print with the print number stated on the certificate.
This is a limited edition run of a total of 250 prints!
