About This Print

While the lines on the green tablet-like object might look inscribed they are flat with the 3-dimensional effect achieved through the use of various materials added to the carved woodblock, in this case possibly some type of string, and then printing using dense pigments. "Memory" and "recollection" figure prominently in Tajima's paintings from this period.
