In the woods, we often meet Jizô, a small stone figure hidden behind the trees. Sometimes alone, sometimes in a group. Occassionally naked, often wearing decorated fabrics. The villagers take care of him: Jizô is the guardian of children.

This print was made using a baren – a traditional Japanese tool – and 5 hand-carved linoleum plates.
Every print is unique, with its own subtle variations.
The frame is not included.
