|Notes:||A gorgeous kacho-e scene of two white geese swimming, by Shoson Ohara (also known as Koson). This print stands as a testament to the creative skills of the woodblock print carver and printer, who have given 3-D life to this scene by using strong kara-zuri (embossing, blind printing) to the geese and water (see images). Stunningly beautiful! This rare pre-war strike has been well preserved - it is in pristine condition except for very minor light crease at the bottom right (barely visible). "Made in Japan" seal on verso. Watanabe "D" publisher seal in the right margin.
