Masao Ido


Truly beautiful woodblock print "Yasuragi no Niwa" (Relaxing Garden) is by Masao Ido. Stunning colors, composition and contrast. Very tranquil mood. Japanese gardens are seldom, if ever open to the public designed to create the mood appropriate to worship and contemplation. A place of refuge and peace of mind. Ishi-doro, stone platform lamp, the lantern's structure is meant to symbolize the five elements of Buddhist cosmology. The stone water basins (called "Tsukubai"), which are used for ritual cleansing, Water basins are an essential element of tea gardens and are often paired with lanterns. This is for visitors to purify themselves by the ritual washing of hands and rinsing of mouth. This type of ritual cleansing is also the custom for guests attending a tea ceremony. This is perfect print to someone who loves "Zen". This print will give you "PEACE OF MIND" very much.
