NIWA (Nunnery)

Japanese Color Woodblock Print 

NIWA (Nunnery)

by Takahashi Rikio, 1985

Garden in Kyoto

IHL Cat. #1692

About This Print

Another large print by Takahashi depicting one his beloved Kyoto gardens.  Perhaps an abstraction of Kyoto's Jakko-in Temple which has been a nunnery since the 12th century or just the artist's conception of a formal garden within a temple/nunnery?
