A collaboration with renowned sumi-e artist Michael Hofmann, who painted these stunning portraits of six jizo - Bodhisattvas in the form of Buddhist monks who are devoted to the welfare of children -- having a matcha party. We adore them, and think you will too. Guaranteed to bring warmth and cheer to any room! JIZO MATCHA PARTY was first painted with the broadest strokes in an outline of the jizo and tea in sumi; we then printed those strokes on beautiful German bamboo paper, which was subsequently painted on again in about 20 different ways. Comes matted, framed and ready to hang, or unframed. The hardwood, ebony-like frame is made in Italy and is perfect for the piece.
