ST. MICHAEL the ARCHANGEL
DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI
This is an ink drawing on an approximately 11 1/2" × 15 1/4" piece of translucent washi with one deckle edge. I drew it using fine-tipped pens and calligraphers’ inks applied with brushes.
The original is available for sale.
This is one of several drawings I have made depicting Christian religious subjects in the style of traditional Japanese art. It depicts St. Michael the Archangel fighting the dragon Lucifer, who falls like lightning from heaven. St. Michael brandishes a samurai sword and wears Japanese armor. Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, especially those of Utagawa Kuniyoshi, strongly influenced the style and composition of this drawing. The inscription, written in blue and red ink in classical Japanese, says Saint Michael the Archangel.
