Gyotaku is a traditional Japanese art form that is highly unique, and some may even say bizarre. The word Gyotaku itself is a combination of two separate words – Gyo, which means ‘fish’, and Taku, which means rubbing. As its name indicates, Gyotaku is an art that produces imprints of fish through the method of rubbing. I have used a real four pound octopus to make this print. I use a non toxic ink. After thoroughly rinsing this Ocean creature it will not go to waste and still be edible. The actual paper size is 24x36 inches. It is 50% Kozo, 50% Banana fiber & bark in a light weight base, Paper color is pink octopus is painted in white arcryclic then transfered over to paper. Then used metallic gold ink to give it some highlights. I will deliver in a PVC tube to protect from any damages. "FRAME NOT INCLUDED" if you live one oahu we can negotiate on framing cost.
