Chōchin are a type of paper lantern traditionally used in festivals. They have a spiral frame made from bamboo and covered in paper to protect the frame. The spiral frame enables them collapse down into the basket at the bottom. They are the most sterotypical and recognisable Japanese lantern.
This print is the first ever print I have made only using Sugarlift. It was painted onto the zinc freehand with no guide.
