Gyotaku reproduction fish print of a Pacific Giant Octopus “Underwater Crown”.
Faithful to the original Japanese style of creating memorable prints for the avid fisherman; simple and monochromatic.
Gyotaku is the traditional Japanese alternative to taxidermy that began several hundred years ago by an ingenious calligrapher.
Meant as a way to record a proud catch for fishermen, it can also be a stunning art form.
All of the reproduction prints that I offer are museum grade Giclee prints on premium art rag papers (similar in feel to hot pressed watercolor paper) or handmade washi paper (same type we use for original artwork).
If you like one of my images but prefer it in a different size, simply inquire and I will do my best to cater to your wishes. Anything is possible up to 70 inches, as well as printing on different materials such as canvas or even Japanese washi paper.
Framing take 1-3 weeks to complete. Customers outside of the US will be given price quotes for shipping after sale.
Please don’t hesitate in contacting me regarding this print or other specimens that you may be looking for here.
