I'm not yet sure who the artist Hosen is, but without a doubt he is one of the most talented Nihon-Ga scroll artists I've seen. His scenes are powerfully drawn and his attention to detail is unsurpassed. Take a look at the close-up image of the tiger's face below. Each and every hair is hand-drawn, and they cover the entire body of this tiger -- it must have taken Hosen days to complete it. I've seen several other scrolls by this artist and they are both equally as powerful and detailed as this scene.
