Yabakei (Ooita Ken, Nakatsu City Japan)

This is a postcard made in a maru hyousou style scroll. Approximate dimensions are about 24 inches long by 16 inches long. The Hashira are approximately 1 inch and 0.5 inch respectively.

This was one of my favorite places to visit in an area of Japan near Nakatsu called Yabakei. This was an area frequented by monks, priests and hermits for meetings of philosophical debate.

The beauty of the nature and the colors of the trees prompted me to use a veneered red cloth with gold leaves to remind one of the changing fall colors.
