HOLIDAY SPIRIT IN ART
A WALK IN THE SNOW
One kind word can warm 3 winter months.
Japanese artist Hasui Kawase (1883-1957) combined the traditional genre scenes of ukiyo-e masters Hiroshige and Hokusai with Western realism as, in the example above, of a woman before the Buddhist temple Zojo-ji in Shiba. Protected only by her umbrella, she struggles toward her destination, combating the elements of wind and snow. I don’t know the source of the accompanying proverb but it definitely brings comfort and solace for those of us awaiting the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.
