Mushin with Koi Cloth

This is a beautiful scroll with an unorthodox cloth. The characters read Mushin or Empty Mind. This concept is taught deeply in Martial Arts and Buddhism. It is written in the Gyousho style by Yoshimi Yamada Maples. The mixture of red hanging string and Jikusaki set against the black cloth is very georgeous.
