Two-Step (Nidan Hyougu) Buddha Scroll

Custom Japanese Calligraphy

This is a Two-Step Scroll called a ¿¿¿¿ Nidan Hyougu. Ni stands for the number two and Dan stands for step or process. This style is accomplished by setting a ¿¿ Chumawashi around the work along with the additional Ten and Chi. It differs from the Sandan or Three Step scroll style in that there is no Ichimonji attached to the work. This is a scroll that depicts a symbol of the Buddha, or ¿¿ Hotokesama. It was created by Ben Strawn, an artist in Salida, Colorado. The artist painted on a strip > MORE of canvas. I put the Hada Urauchi (first layer of paper) on the cloth Silk ¿¿ Chumawashi, which is the green cloth in the scroll. The Ten & Chi were requested to be an earth tone color. I had never tried to use corduroy fabric in a scroll before, and it actually turned out to be quite complementary with the heaviness of the canvas with which the work is placed. The work is further completed with black lacquered wood Jikusaki and the red color in the Kakehimo blends simply with the red of the corduroy cloth. ^ LESS
