"Taking Novices to the Temple" b&w&color linoleum block print and serigraph, limited edition & signed in pencil by the artist. 1974, State II, 30" x 12" approx. First and only edition of 10. There is also a b&w edition. Printed on acid free Japanese mulberry paper.

When young men ordain as monks in Thailand, there is a big festival ending in a procession dancing to the temple and around it three times. Here they came by canal and danced in the boats and up the banks. Note the drummer.

This print is clear and the image undamaged. However the paper, a Japanese mulberry tissue paper has some holes in it (in the margin and repaired, and some spotting, hence the price. It is nearly 40 yrs old. There is a copy on regular Japanese mulberry paper in good condition which is also listed on Etsy.

Contact the artist for cost of shipping outside the USA.

Florida residents must pay 6.5% sales tax.

As many large unframed prints as you wish can be shipped together for the price of one. As many unframed/unmatted small prints as you wish can be included also. But flat framed/matted work cannot fit into a mailing tube with rolled unframed work . . . unless the frame is bigger and the unframed work can be laid against it.
