Fukushima Keido Roshi: Bright and Clear

Bright and Clear
Fukushima Keido Roshi,
Ink on Paper, 13.5″ x 53″

An example of three-character calligraphy and an expression of satori enlightenment. The second character repeats as the third, which Fukushima indicates with a “repeat” sign that is simpler in form than the characters above it. The word “bright” is composed of a sun on the left and a moon on the right, although the pictographic elements are less visible in the powerful cursive script.
