Niwa Mannei was a Zen monk in the Daitoku-ji branch of the Rinzai sect. He served as the 15th chief priest of Kisshō-ji Temple. He was also known as a master of calligraphy and there are many fans. In this piece, next to a female aristocrat of the Heian period in Japan painted by a Japanese painter, Miyake Wakō, Niwa Mannei wrote a character that expresses one of the Japanese aesthetics that symbolize this era, elegance.
Niwa Mannei created this calligraphy when he was 96 years old. However, it is a truly imposing handwriting that does not give any hint of his age. This work is proof that even in his later years, Niwa Mannei was actively producing works.
