Description

It is said that Zen was introduced to China by Daruma (Bodhidharma) and was passed down in its original form to “Rokuso Enou”(sixth leader Enou). Zen was further divided into The Goke Shichishuu of Zen (five sects and seven schools derived from the original Zen Buddhism) such as the “Rinzaishuu” and “Soutoushuu” sects. It has also significantly influenced the course of development of Japanese religion in general. Emphasis is placed on Daruma in Zen, and sometimes the word “Soshi” (founder) is used to refer to him.
This work is a painting of Daruma and “jikishininshin-kenshoujoubutsu” calligraphy perfected by Masaaki Tanaka. This text states that all living things realize the inherent buddha nature they possess. “Buddha nature” refers to the sacred form of a living thing’s nature, which forms the basis for becoming a buddha. We can see his high degree of painting skill through the dynamics of his brushstrokes.

Our Feelings For Kakejiku


 The Japanese people have long set a high value on aesthetic senses since ancient times. As a result, the
peculiar culture which is not seen in other countries blossomed and many aspects of the modern Japanese
culture come from it. Parts of Japanese culture has been introduced to people in other countries recently,
so the number of people from other countries who are interested in Japanese culture has been increasing.
However, the Japanese aesthetic senses, which are the bases of Japanese culture, have been nurtured
through a long history, intertwining various elements intricately, such as climate, geographical features,
religion, customs and so on. Therefore, they are very difficult to understand not only for people from other
countries, but even for the Japanese people. I think the best tool which conveys these difficult senses
understandably is a “kakejiku.”
 The kakejiku (a hanging scroll; a work of calligraphy or a painting which is mounted and hung in an
alcove or on a wall) is a traditional Japanese art. It's no exaggeration to say that paintings are what
express aesthetic senses at all times and places. The kakejiku is an art which expresses the Japanese
aesthetic senses. The kakejiku has long been used in traditional Japanese events, daily life and so on since
ancient times. As a result, there are various customs of kakejiku in Japan; kakejiku and the life of the
Japanese are closely related. We can see Japanese values through kakejiku.
 The kakejiku is a cultural tradition which the Japanese people should be proud of. However, many people
in other countries don't know much about it because it hasn't been showcased as much. This is why I
decided to try to introduce it. The kakejiku world is very interesting and beautiful. We want not only the
Japanese, but also many people from other countries to know and enjoy it. I hope that many people will
love kakejiku someday.
