Nandina and Amur adonis have long been known as auspicious plants and have been prized by people. It is believed that “Nanten Fukuju”, in which the two plants are drawn, has a similar sound as “Nan ga tenjite fuku to naru (turning difficulty into good fortune)”, and it is thought that it exerts great luck.
In this work, the auspicious theme is drawn concisely with the exquisite brush strokes unique to Japanese-style painter Yuki Bishū, who was specialized in haiga (simple painting praising haiku poetry). On the right side of the painting is a haiku poem by Matsuo Bashō in the Edo period. The phrase is as follows.
It’s raining in winter, but it’s getting colder. It will soon become snow. I’m looking forward to it.
It is a phrase that expresses the feeling of excitement expecting snow. The change in which the cold rain in winter turns into snow is just like “turning difficulty into a good fortune”, and this painting is interesting in which you can feel the exciting expectations for the future.
