Calligraphy by Shinzan Roshi – Hi idete kenkon kagayaku



Japanese: Hi idete kenkon kagayaku
English translation: The sun rises shining light on heaven and earth
Box: Wooden with card sleeve
Scroll dimensions: 165x40cm

When there is light, everything is clearly revealed and nothing is hidden. Worldly illusions are removed and all is good wherever you are.

This is the first part of a two-line verse, the second half of which is, “The clouds settle, the mountain peaks are verdant green.” Thus, as enlightenment emerges and illusions disappear.

Visually, there are many complex characters here, but Shinzan Roshi has anchored the work with the first character, “sun” (hi 日). This character is developed from the pictograph of a sun which was a simple circle with a dot in the centre. Shinzan Roshi playfully retains these ancient characteristics in his version.
