Blue Lobster Print

Product Description

Gyotaku is an ancient Japanese art form which grew from the need for fishermen to prove the size of their largest catch in a world before photography. Gyotaku involves making a 'rubbing' of the animal by carefully preparing it and then applying ink or paint. A soft, flexible paper or cloth is then used to cover the marine life, making contact in all relief areas. These direct prints offer a painterly approach to the realism of form, with an exact replication of the specimen.
