The purpose of this project is to help raise funds for Japan and Jurik Designs will be donating partial proceeds from the sales of the prints to the Japanese Red Cross Society.
Regarding "Japan Tribute 2011" the Japan Skating Federation said:  "After the crisis that happened in Japan, many of us spent time in deep sorrow.  Regretfully, we had to transfer the hosting of the 2011 World Figure Skating Championships to Moscow.  During this championship, the Japanese skaters performances delivered hope to the suffering victims in Japan.  This art work captures not only the skaters beauty, but also their strength."
Jurik Designs would like to sincerely thank the figure skaters depicted, for allowing the use of their image for this project, and would also like to thank the Japanese Skating Federation for all their time, support and heart - for enabling this fundraiser to take place.

The original artwork for "Japan Tribute 2011" http://jurikdesigns.com/Japan/japan.html  is a pencil drawing that depicts the top Japanese figure skaters who were to compete in Tokyo at the 2011 World Figure Skating Championships.  While watching live TV coverage of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in March 2011, the idea and purpose for this artwork was originated.
In the artwork
"Japan Tribute 2011"
allery/index_japan.php the Japanese figure skaters are depicted as a cohesive group - displaying their unity, strength, courage and determination.  From left to right they include:  Kananko Murakami, Nobunari Oda, Mao Asada, Daisuke Takahashi, Miki Ando, Takahiko Kozuka, Mervin Tran and Narumi Takahashi.
The artwork captures not only the skaters beauty, but also their strength.
