Paperblanks kirikane dhyana mini lined precision informed by devotion. Literally “cut gold”, Kirikane refers to the meditative practice of decorating Buddhist paintings and statues with gold metal leaf. The precision of the kirikane artist is informed by devotion and mindfulness. The earliest surviving examples of kirikane originate from Baekje (18 BCE–660 CE), one of the three ancient kingdoms of Korea. In Japan, kirikane flourished during the eleventh century until it faded from view three centuries later, all but extinguished by the use of gold paint to replace precious metal.
