About the Art

A fisher boy pauses hangs up his bucket and climbs into a willow tree, to sit and gaze towards Mount Fuji. He looks towards the mountain, which towers before him and dominates the landscape utterly, and seems to serenade it with the flute raised to his lips.

The stillness of the mountain and the boy contrasts with the fast, cascading flow of the water between the two of them.

This is not a typical woodblock print, and was made with ink and color on silk.
