Utagawa Kuniyoshi knew a thing or two about ghost stories. In this monstrous scene, he depicts the Princess Takiyasha, trapped by imperial samurai sent to hunt her down. But the young woman has old magic on her side, and from the scroll in her hand she reads the spell to summon a Gashadokuro—a gigantic skeleton assembled from the bodies of the soldiers that followed her doomed father in an unsuccessful revolt against the Japanese emperor.

    • World-renowned Hahnemühle Paper

      In college I worked in a print studio, and on jobs that required the best materials in the world, we used Hahnemühle paper. Hahnemühle has been making art papers in Germany since 1587, and their beautifully soft, sturdy papers are beloved around the world by print nerds like me. Obelisk's prints use Hahnemühle's 308gsm Photo Rag. It's a heavy, stable stock with a subtle tooth and velvety surface that reveals its 100% cotton composition without distracting from the image. It's vegan certified, archive-stable, and provides a perfect surface for Giclée printing.

    • Vibrant 12-color Giclée Printing

      To ensure the best possible reproduction, Obelisk uses Giclée printing (pronounced gee-klay), which uses pigment-based archival inks instead of standard dye-based inks, resulting in more vivid, fade-resistant colors and deeper blacks. Giclée printing also operates at a higher resolution than standard printing, so printed images are more detailed and gradients are smoother. 

    • Secure Shipping

      To ensure its safe arrival, prints are shipped in sturdy cardboard tubes with recycled plastic ends. You'll want to lay the print out on a flat surface ideally for a couple of says after arrival, to allow the paper fibers to relax and the print to flatten before mounting or hanging.
