One of Vietnam's most iconic attractions, Hoi An's Japanese covered bridge dates back to the 18th century and is a beautiful historical piece of Japanese architecture. It is claimed that it was created by the Japanese then living in Hoi An as a way to reach the Chinese quarter across the water.
This woodcut captures the tranquil feeling of the bridge as the pillars reflect in the gently swaying water.
Single layer woodcut, hand carved from a 20 x 30cm Japanese magnolia wood block and printed on traditional Vietnamese 'dzo' paper with a clam shell coating.
