Evening Bell at Mii Temple - Wonderful evening scene and peaceful view from Hiroshige's "Eight Views of Omi Province" series. The rolling, mountainous hillside of classic village houses nestled among the trees. Lovely soft color, excellent piece for display. Nice singly or in a group with other Omi province subjects.

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.
