Artist: [Untranslated] *

A remarkable image dating from an earlier period of print making. The scene is depicted without a context, merely the main subject with the text of a poem floating freely on a blank page. Of particular interest is the manner in which the historically deeper pot is incorporated not “on” a display stand, but concealed beneath it. Interestingly, the specimen Goyomatsu [White Pine] is of very considerable size.....note the scale of the female figure in relation to the tree.
