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 Bodhidharma with gold paint on the black color background by Seizan Kuzuya. The Bodhidharma, painted with hasty but strong brushstrokes, illustrates full vitality, which demonstrates the artist’s skilful talent.
