1. Product Description
This is a Giclee fine art, the original oil painting is by Japanse artist Kawahara Mina.
The painting's model is the statue of Ashura, a very famous masterpiece of Japanese buddha statues in Tenpyo Era, which is now safekept in Koufuku-ji, Nara.
Ashura is a god who has different personalities, his name "Ashura" was written as "Asura" in the ancient India language.
"Asura" was explained both as "The one who give lives"(Asu ra) and "Non-heaven"(A sura).
In Persian, he is worshiped as a sun god who gives grace to the earth, but in India, he is a bad sun god who dry up the earth, and also a god of fighting and battle with Indra(Taishakuten).
In Buddhism, he is a god of the eight followers who protect Buddhism and the Buddha beside him.
He has a frown expression on his first face, he is almost naked upper the waist, and on the lower part, he dressed in colorful textile.
*The miniature statue of Ashura is also selling in our shop here.
Giclee is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. The name originally applied to fine art prints created on IRIS printers in a process invented in the late 1980s but has since come to mean any inkjet print. It is often used by artists, galleries, and print shops to denote high quality printing but since it is an unregulated word it has no associated warranty of quality. (via wiki pedia)
