Hiroshige was one of the most prolific artists in Japanese history. This piece was originally produced in 1833-5 for the series “Eight Views of Omi Province (Omi hakkei)”. It is an excellent example of the bold line and confident brush strokes of Hiroshige. Mountains are auspicious for longevity. Calm water is a Zen reflection of one’s inner calm. Lone fishermen are a Zen reminder of the importance of setting aside time to think and contemplate. Traditional houses symbolize humility and happiness in the home. Bamboo is strength, flexibility, quickly rising to the top, and a Zen reminder that it, like people, has strong parts (the joints) and weak parts (the parts in the center, furthest away from the joint), and a that the beauty of a bamboo grove comes from both its strongest and weakest stalks.
