Waterfall Sumie #2 - Maru Hyougu

This was another variation on the waterfall. It was completed by Mariusz Szmerdt, polish artist. He can be reached at This waterfall has more detail than the previous one, but it still focuses on the detail in the water rolling off the rocks, but I purposefully asked the artist to not add other vegetation to compete with a bonsai or Sanyasou in a display. This has a little higher quality cloth silk with a beautiful flower arabesque. When looking from far away it melds together like flowing water. It is completed with the Shibucha stained wood jikusaki and a Kodai San Iro kakehimo.
