I would actually surprised if this was a print. From the image here it looks like a piece of calligraphy done using some resist matter. Sometimes it might be an alum solution, other times it could be something as simple as soy milk. The calligraphy would be done using one of these substances instead of ink.
Once the resist was dry, a wash of ink would be applied to the paper. The white lines thus created are where the resist substance was applied.
This calligraphy is I think a Buddhist saying along the lines of 'hold and polish the one'. 維摩一。
A very powerful piece.
