Ema Show Opens at Hellion in Portland & Tokyo

Excited to take part in  the first annual Ema show......................

 Ema are small wooden plaques on which Shinto worshipers write their prayers or wishes. The ema are then left hanging up at the shrine, where the kami (spirits or gods) receive them. They bear various pictures, often of animals or other Shinto imagery, and many have the word gan’i (願意), meaning “wish”, written along the side. In ancient times people would donate horses to the shrines for good favor; over time this was transferred to a wooden plaque with a picture of a horse, and later still to the various wooden plaques sold today for the same purpose.



Opening March 5th, 6pm at Hellion Gallery in Portland (3 days only, closes on March 7th)
Opening March 13th, 7pm at  HPGRP Gallery in Tokyo  (closes on March 23rd)
