"Mugen | Cloudland"


Dimensions: 12-0” h

The beautifully rendered brush strokes of abstract green clouds on the Kimono, allow the viewer to appreciate the simplicity of his work. The Keyaki wood from which it is made helps to accentuate her serine facial expression and hair detailing.  In Japanese culture, clouds represent elegance and high status. In Buddhism, clouds signify the “Western Paradise” beyond earth; and in Shintoism, the spirits of the dead. This piece won the Prime Minister’s Award for excellence. The piece is signed.
