About This Print

Sixteen suns float on and behind Mt. Fuji, bathing it in shimmering (a light dusting of mica in the deep orange) sunlight.  Funasaka's unique multi-color vertical forms, which appear in so many of his prints, are printed using reusable woodblock cutouts.  The technique used to create the rest of the print is likely silkscreen.
