Hiroshige

A diorama based upon Hiroshige's "Fifty-three stations of the Tokaido / Kambara, Evening Snow".

I assembled the diorama myself from a kit (thank you, Amy) by Tatebanko.com, which says that paper diorama-building, or "tatebanko," was a Japanese art practiced for centuries and forgotten in the 20th century.

The original 1833 Edo Period print by Ando Hiroshige (1797-1958) can be seen here.
