Original woodblock print, Kuchi-e - Mizuno Toshikata (1866-1908) - Empress Taira no Tokuko (平徳子) frontispiece of the novel "The Jakkoin Temple" (寂光院) - 1901

The Empress Taira no Tokuko (平徳子), depicted here in Heian (平安) style with long black hair falling on a magnificent junihitoe (十二単) kimono, became a nun after the death of her five-year-old son in the naval battle of Dannoura (壇ノ浦の戦い). The artist Mizuno Toshikata (水野年方) creates a strong duality with the sumptuousness of the figure in the foreground and, in the background, the simplicity of the ascetic life that she would lead with two other nuns in a hermitage in the northern outskirts of Kyoto (京都).

The kuchi-e (口絵) type woodblock print was made as a frontispiece of the novel entitled "The Jakkoin Temple" (寂光院) by the writer Miyake Seiken (三宅青軒).

The work, printed in 1901 by the Hakubunkan (博文館) publishing house for the vol. 7 n. 3 of the famous literary magazine Bungei Kurabu (文芸倶楽部), despite some small stains is in good condition.

The woodblock print will be well-packaged and shipped by registered mail with a tracking code.

    Fatal. Al elevado precio de envío hay que sumar que el envio ha sido retenido en Barajas para pagar los impuestos y las tasas correspondientes. Con lo que es difícil ue pueda ser peor.

    We are very sorry that you experienced your purchase negatively. Unfortunately we cannot change the reality of the fact that we ship from a country that is on the other side of the world compared to Spain and, above all, we are not the editors of international customs legislation. We have tried to work diligently within the limits of what we can do. Best regards. Luigi Mascellino

    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    Dear a-marius,

    first of all let me point out that the "final delivery" indication does not come from us sellers or even from Catawiki. The "final delivery" indication comes from the postal service.

    Secondly, I give you the following links to track the package according to Japan Post (https://trackings.post.japanpost.jp/services/srv/sequenceNoSearch/?requestNo=&count=&moveIndividual.x=144&moveIndividual.y=16&moveIndividual=Tracking+by+serial+number&locale=en) and PostNL (https://www.internationalparceltracking.com/#/search).

    If the post tracking gives indications that differ from reality, the advice we give you is to contact the PostNL customer service and ask for clarification.

    That said, we remain at your disposal. If we can do something from here from Tokyo, let us know and we will be happy to cooperate.

    We await your news regarding shipment updates.

    Best regards.
    Luigi Mascellino
