Barn Swallow, hand carved Moku Hanga, woodblock print, 4"x6"

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Printed in the Japanese Moku Hanga style using a baren and brush, this black and white print depicts a Barn Swallow atop her recently constructed mud nest. Barn Swallows are plentiful and they often build their distinctive nests on manmade structures. With this print, you can have your very own nesting swallow in your home!

This woodblock print was made using the traditional Japanese method called Moku Hanga (wood print). Wate based ink mixed with rice paste was brushed onto a hand carved block. Japanese paper was carefully placed atop the inked block and quickly rubbed with a disc baren in order to lift the print. Subtle brush marks can be seen on the printed portion of the nest to indicate texture.

I hope you enjoy viewing this print!
