|Original, limited edition Japanese woodblock print by Shuzo Ikeda (b. 1922), titled No. 96, 1956. This is a nice, early work by the artist, reminiscent of the Buddhist figures produced by Kiyoshi Saito. The artist's later works focused more on large eyed children. There is a collector's seal in the lower right corner. This print is in very good condition, except for a light horizontal crease running across the print, about 1 inch down from the top edge of the print, and two pieces of clear tape, one each at the center of the top and bottom margins. The dimensions of the print are approximately 17 ? by 12 inches, plus full margins.
