    Print:  Sin Nombre

    Comment:  Woodcut on Japanese Mulberry; Graphic Chemical and Dan Smith oil-based inks on three basswood planks; 4 colors, one with a rainbow roll. Ed 40.

    We have an influx of mice every fall here in the New Hampshire woods. They are cute, but also have a dangerous side. The image in the background is an abstracted version of the hantavirus, a deadly disease carried in wild mouse droppings. The Navaho, on whose New Mexico reservation the hantavirus was first discovered in the U.S., gave the name "Sin Nombre", which means "no name", to the disease.
