"Our generation, having created nuclear weapons and nuclear power, has left such a sad legacy to this world. So I made this painting. Madonna as Guadalupe is very sad and tries to protect the children with her star cape. She intercedes for us in time of need.
I exhibited this Guadalupe at the International Court of Justice, or World Court of the United Nations, at the Hague, Netherlands, as our case on the legality of nuclear weapons was heard.
I exhibited her between the Red Fudo Myo-o and the Blue Fudo Myo-o in front of the gates of the court so that the judges could see her as they came and went. While we carried her, we chanted the Lotus Sutra to pray for a good judgement."
A giclée (zhee-KLAY) is a fine art archival pigment print. A reproduction of an original artwork, which is digitally photographed and then precisely reproduced on a large format printer.
Our giclée’s are printed using the longest-lasting pigmented inks on the finest papers available. We use a water-based pigment printer on pH balanced paper. The best quality prints are created with 12-color ink sets, as used by our printer.
Currently, this is the only format in which to acquire many of Mayumi’s large thangka paintings.
