FeatureType of print: Woodcut print

The Red Tiger ("Sekiko") protects the South, while the Blue Tiger ("Seiko") guards the East. Mr. Kaneko's unique world of divine beasts has been transformed into brilliantly colored traditional woodcut prints. 

In China, the Red Tiger is a mystical creature that is often seen as a divine being and can replace the Vermillion Bird as the protector of the South. It is said that the Red Tiger has magical powers and can transform itself into a human being. Moreover, the Red Tiger represents "yang" and the Blue Tiger symbolizes "yin," together governing the balance of the world as "yin and yang." With a black sun in the background, the Red Tiger strikes a powerful pose and stares fixedly ahead, revealing the unwavering spirit and passion of Mr. Kaneko himself. This is a piece that fully expresses Mr. Kaneko's unique world of divine beasts.

Making Process & Adachi's Artisans

The production of ukiyo-e, which developed as a commercial printing method, focused on efficiency and profitability. And so, all processes are streamlined and sophisticated. We will introduce the basics of ukiyo-e techniques through the production process of Katsushika Hokusai's masterpiece "The Great Wave off Kanagawa."
