Prints from the Age of the Samurai - With this group of Edo era prints opening at incentivized low bids, take a moment to be transported back to the age when samurai ruled Japan. During the Tokugawa Shogunate, Japan enjoyed a period of relative peace and prosperity for more than 250 years. Woodblock prints captured scenes from daily life, warriors and battles, the beauties of the Yoshiwara pleasure district, kabuki, and travelers along the Tokaido and Kisokaido roads. Watch for Age of the Samurai prints each week at Fuji Arts.

Seta: Beauty with a Box Depicting the Lucky Gods - Charming image of a beauty carrying a box or lantern which features a scene of three of Japan's beloved Seven Lucky Gods on the side. The scene shows Ebisu, Benzaiten, and Daikoku gathered around a meal on a large tray, the pair at right playing a hand game called ken. A border of clouds separates the figure from a view of Seta, one of the famous Eight Views of Omi. Nicely detailed.
