'The Old Sage' Giclée Print

We're sorry, this item is sold out.



I'm very pleased with the overall tone and mood of this design. At first glance it seems to depict a simple meal shared by a master and his ward. But hidden imagery lurks in the shadows, hinting that  great danger is never far away...

When designing this image, I closely studied several Yoshitoshi prints, with a specific emphasis on 'The duel between Miyamoto Musashi and Tsukahara Bokuden', made in 1885. If you examine that design closely, you'll see where I borrowed a few key visual elements. 


The white cartouche reads:


Which roughly translates to:

If you choose the quick and easy path, you will become an agent of evil.

Archival pigments on acid-free handmade Japanese paper.

Every print is signed and sealed by the artist.
Measures 12x17 inches.

This print looks great in three standard 16 x 20 frames (US, Canada) or 40 x 50 cm (everywhere else).
Jed really likes this one for its simple design.


31.75 x 43 cm.
