'Hearts of Gold' Giclée Print

We're sorry, this item is sold out.

I can't believe it took me this long to finally pay homage to this wonderful series. Thank you to all the wonderful fans who kept reminding me to fit it into my schedule!

Although this series is packed with action and fascinating world building, my favorite part was always the deep love shared between the characters. I tried to capture those feelings in this design (without getting too mushy!).  I hope this print brings back fond memories for you too!

The larger cartouche reads 反魂の黄金術師, which is a slight alteration from the original title.  We replaced the original word 鋼 (steel) with 反魂 (soul). They sound similar (hagane, hangon) - but the new term refers more to the brothers' illicit tampering with human alteration. 

The smaller cartouche reads: 

鋼即必錆 こうそくひっしょう
骨身遂崩 こっしんすいほう
只黄金心 しおうごんしん
不朽不尽    ふきゅうふじん
...which is a poem in classical Japanese - heavily influenced by Chinese pronunciation. The rough translation means:
Metal surely rusts
Flesh and bones in the end crumble
Only a heart of gold
Endures without end

Archival pigments on acid-free handmade Japanese paper.
