Japan Earthquake 2011 no.1

by Linda Yuki Nakanishi

Collect your choice of gallery quality Giclée, or fine art prints custom trimmed by hand in a variety of sizes with a white border for framing.


This poster represents the resilience of the Japanese people. The lotus symbolises birth and rebirth, and the red lotus in particular represents love, compassion and passion (much of which is needed for the people of Japan).

The lotus is a flower that is born from the mud of the earth, fights its way through the depths of the water to bloom into the air and sunlight. This is how I view Japan, as a country that teaches their people to be strong and to endure. This is also what my parents taught me, even though we live an ocean away in Canada.

All profits from the sale of this poster will go to the Canadian Red Cross efforts for the victims affected by the recent tsunami and earthquakes.

The best of all the "Help Japan" posters I have seen because it avoids the obvious cliches and instead uses imagery that has real meaning. Nicely done.

what do the characters mean?
Linda Yuki Nakanishi commented on March 16, 2011 4:05am
Thank you for the kind comments. The first two characters mean "Japan" the last two mean "Earthquake".
