age :contemporary
size :H62 x W122 x D1.6(cm)
size :H24 x W48 x D 3/4(inch)
A four-panel folding screen made of multi-layered Washi paper pasted onto a wooden frame.
Coarsely woven pure white raw silk is stretched over the Washi, on which an unorthodox form of the Chinese character for "nothingness" is written."Nothingness" is the basic creed of Zen Buddhism, meaning that humans are born from nothing and returns to nothing.
The artist conveyed all of his fifty years of experience in drawing this character in just one breath.
Borders of silk brocade and a black lacquered frame tone up the entire work.The artist's stamp is on the bottom left.
Daily care only requires occasional dusting with a feather duster.Please avoid direct sunlight and excess dryness, just as you would do to care for your furniture. This will preserve the screen's quality for years to come.
