Nandina and adonis ramosa flowers have long been prized as plants of good omen. Punning on a saying ‘A trouble turns into a happiness’ (Trouble =Nan= Nanten/Nandina, Happiness=Fuku =Fukujyusō/Adonis ), these plants have been painted by many painters as an auspicious subject.
This is a joint work by a Japanese-style painter Miyake Wakō, who painted Nandina and adonis ramosa flowers, and contemporary Zen monk Takahashi Yūhō, a renowned expert calligrapher, who wrote “福寿 fukuju” next to the painting. The vivid colors of nandina fruits and adonis ramosa flowers and the vigorous calligraphy of “fukuju” successfully indicate the strength to ward off bad luck, accordingly being one of the very works of good fortune.
