obaiban tate-e 21 5/8 by 16 3/8 in., 55 by 41.5 cm

This print, and a related print, Ho-o (Phoenix), are both derived from a much sought-after design commissioned in 2006, Ho-o no Yume (Phoenix Dream). Both new releases employ many of the original blocks, but Binnie in effect has split the original composition into two distinct subjects, the ho-o tattoo, and the dream. This print uses the same striped kimono as the original composition, but now in shades of pink, while the background is delicately shaded as to suggest a small high window casting light down on to the beauty with the somewhat dreamy expression.

This impression sold- another impression is available.
