Naga Offering – Faith Stone
Naga offering shows a Nagini, a female naga, in Buddhist teachings nagas protect against illness and malevolent energy, heal the land and reveal hidden teachings. She holds a flaming jewel to represent the secret teachings entrusted to the nagas by PadmaSambhava.
This is an original Mokuhanga woodblock on Japanese Kozo paper. Mokuhanga is the Japanese method for carving and printing woodblocks. It is a labor-intensive old-school method. It is non-toxic using water-based inks and watercolors and low tech. No printing press is needed. First the woodblock is hand-carved. Then, hand-rubbed onto Menlei Kozo paper using watercolor inks and. a bamboo baren. In this example, I am using the key block with Sumi ink.
Size: 11″ x 14″ with mat.
