Nikko is quiet and I love the trees that hug the paths up the various hills and mountains. The cedar trees are majestic and some are sacred.


Shimenawa are ropes that are decorated with Shide (paper decorations) and placed upon objects to attract spirits during religious ceremonies. Please read more here ->

Knowing what these decorations mean helps me understand the history, culture, and importance of the trees a bit more. 


Produced on aluminum, the image is infused into the surface and not on it, the artwork takes on a nice luminescence. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be cleaned easily – just avoid direct sunlight.


Sacred Cedar - Nikko is 12x18 with a satin finish to avoid reflections. It also has a wall mount.
