A framed, mounted print of a reproduction of Lion Dogs, Ishibashi Kazunori (1876-1928) drawing, ink and colour on paper.
The shishi is a mythical beast, frequently found in Japanese painting. Playful and cute, they behave like puppies, leaping and playing with each other. Their origins were more serious, however, as, like the phoenix, they were said to appear only in times of virtuous rule, making them an auspicious symbol of a legitimate ruler
The print has been designed and made in the UK exclusively for National Museums Liverpool.
