Exclusive to the British Museum, a mounted postcard depicting pilgrims on slope of Mt. Fuji (1880).

This striking image is based on a print by Japanese artists Shibata Zeshin (1807-1891) who portrayed a group of pilgrims climbing the Mount Fuji to pay their respects to the Shinto goddess. The sacred mountain has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries and according to an old Shinto tradition the pilgrims wore white clothes and large straw hats just as captured by the artist.

The original was painted in coloured lacquer on paper, a technique first perfected by Shibata Zeshin himself.

A wonderful piece of art for any home.
