- Ryoan-ji no Tsukubai (Stone Washbasin at Ryoan-ji Temple in Snow, Kyoto) -

Masao Ido


The serene woodblock print 'Ryoan-ji no Tsukubai' (Stone Washbasin at Ryoan-ji Temple in Snow, Kyoto) is by Masao Ido (1945–2016). This print is part of the twelve-month Kyoto series. This smaller-format print has a printed title and signature. This exquisite woodblock print captures the peacefulness of the winter season in the famous Kyoto Zen garden. A red camellia flower reflects on the cold water in the stone washbasin, engraved with a Zen word, all surrounded by a blanket of snow. It comes with an original presentation folder and the artist's comment for this print (only in Japanese).
