This fan-shaped print is a reproduction of Buddhist sutra made in the 1970's. The original is a decorated scroll held in Shitenno-ji Temple in Osaka and designated as a National Treasure.
Since the Buddhism believed the end of the world is coming at the end of the Heian period (794 - 1185 A.D.), the transcription of Buddhist sutra for the salvation of the souls among the aristocrats became very popular (Artelino).
This one comes from a series of 16 prints done by carver Uetani Sadao (born 1940), printer Sanemori Shinsho and specialist metallic inclusions Hokimoto Shuzo. On the back side of the print, you should have a stamp such as the one in the attached picture.
