Reference/Illus Although not a "Made in Japan" woodblock, see our recent article titled "Talented Oregon Printmaker -- Kevin Clark" to learn about this talented artist/printmaker.
Comments Big and bold--this print depicts a "shiisa" (or guardian lion) set against a greenish background. Typical of many Clark prints, the print's lower half incorporates highly visible natural "woodgrain."
Once full edition of 50 prints completed, Clark "strikes his initials" into the block's face to ensure NO future printings.
