This black and white woodblock print is a contemporary work, dated to the year 2000. It is a sophisticated composition of balanced forms. The horizontal and vertical temple buildings enclose the foreground; there three trees rise up, their curving trunks and loose leaves contrast with, and thus emphasize the firm grid of the temple building. A large dark shadow spreads across foreground, its shape organic and creature-like, irrational, in the controlled environment of the temple court.
Fine impression and color. Excellent overall condition.
