Collaboration with Michael Hofmann

St. Christopher

49 x 17 inches

The artwork - Michael Hofmann’s gouache portrait of St. Christopher crossing a river, carrying Jesus (who is holding the world).

suji - The narrow edge surrounding the picture is golden brown Shantung silk.

This style of mounting using the same material on top, bottom and sides, is called fukuro hyougu. The material is blue Shantung silk.

 finials - The decorative finials at either end of the bottom roller are glass globes filled with blue-tinted water.

(well, of course the water evaporated…)
