Original rice paper woodblock print of a humanoid creature with an opium pipe.
[Kathmandu, Nepal: Bardo Matrix, 1976].
Depicts a strange creature holding an opium pipe floating in midair above three other figures. This print is one of an overrun made for use in Young's most important work, Opium Elementals that consists of woodblock prints devoted to opium smoking. Young was one of the original Bardo Matrix members and the primary illustrator for their publications. Usual creasing to thin rice paper, else nice overall (image 7" x 5" on larger sheet).
