Subject:Help identify 3 eyed demon woodblock
Posted By: Michael Tue, Feb 25, 2020 IP:

Can anyone help me identify this woodblock/painting?
The red appears to be painted on but could be woodblock....
It is on old paper but has no markings...
Thank you!!!

This painting is used to illustrate "A Descent into Hell" in the hot link below. However, it is in French. This link is google-translated into English:

Just scroll down until you see the painting your print came from. It is an entertaining story of the orgins of Miou-Chen. Miou-Chen is venerated today, in China and Japan, under the name of Kouanine or Kouan-Chi-In. She is the Goddess of Mercy.
