The turbulent waterfall, a symbol of passion and of calm reason. But what forms its being... some mysterious organism? Or mechanism?
What does "he" take in - and spit out?
Good and evil? Purity and impurity? Creation and destruction?
It consumes, and disgorges, all manner of extremes.
This artwork was created to decorate a "Furosaki" folding screen, often used with the Japanese tea ceremony.
"Mazeppa" is an artistic representation of Franz Listz's "The Transcendental Études (Études d'exécution transcendante) No. 4 in D minor, S.139:4 - MAZEPPA"Listen to the song on YouTube here.
The design is a collage of the rakugaki art drawings - based on the theme of "what I love most about my hometown" - made by the primary school children of Preah Put village, which sits by the minefields on the border of Cambodia and Thailand, together with pictures drawn by Unissograff artist ca37.
