signed in kanji, Bin-ni, followed by artist's red seal Binnie, the title, Ho-o, at upper left margin, embossed Binnie at center of bottom margin, and signed in pencil, edition of 200, Paul Binnie, ca. 2009 obaiban tate-e 22 5/8 by 16 1/4 in., 57.5 by 41.3 cm This print, and a related print, Yume no ato (Lingering Dreams), are both derived from a much sought-after design commissioned in 2006, Ho-o no Yume (Phoenix Dream). Both designs utilize many of the original blocks, but Binnie in effect has split the original composition into two distinct subjects, the ho-o tattoo, and the dream. This print uses the same blocks for the tattoo, but there is a new shibori pattern on the deep burgundy-colored kimono. The background is a paler grey, and Binnie chose a heavier paper cut slightly taller to emphasize the fading out of the background color block.
