Hippopotamus - 河馬

Identifier: 1984 Yoshida Hippos

Yoshida traveled in Africa in the 1980s and this is the result of that trip.


Tōshi Yoshida's "Hippopotamus" captures the serene image of a herd of "water horses" at dawn. Printed on mulberry paper from cherry wood blocks self-cut by Yoshida, with zinc plate effect, "Hippopotamus" is one of his sosaku hanga or "creative prints."
