"Niutsu Goddess is a red deity, riding on a red mule and crossing over the river where a volcano is erupting. A braided straw rope, or shimenawa, traditionally defines a sacred space or territory of the gods. It is similar to the kapu in Hawai’i. But in this painting the shimenawa is cut open, like cutting open a secret, hoping that Niutsu would emerge out of it with all her power to expose her truth. She reminds me of a female Dharma Protector similar to Palden Lhamo." –Mayumi Oda
A giclée (zhee-KLAY) is a fine art archival pigment print. A reproduction of an original art work, the piece is digitally photographed and then precisely reproduced on a large format printer.
Our giclées are printed using the longest lasting pigmented inks on the finest papers available. We use a water based pigment printer on pH balanced paper or fabric. The best quality prints are currently created with 12-color ink sets, as used by our printer.
At this time, this is the only format in which to own Mayumi’s large thangka paintings. Each giclée is signed by Mayumi and includes Japanese calligraphy along the border. Due to their hand-painted nature, calligraphy will vary slightly.
Please note: Large size giclée is a special order item. We will print upon purchase. Please allow several extra days for processing.
