shungo asada (japan)


For some reason the post office cancelled the top left part of the illustration. One of those accidents that makes mail art interesting, I guess. The words in the red block refer to a prayer for "Daily Safety." The image depicts Fudō Myōō, one of the Thirteen Buddhas in Japan. Fudō Myōō means "Immovable Wisdom King." Shungo was most certainly thinking of recent events in Japan as he made this print.
