On studying this print, I was challenged by what Maki meant. Did he not get it right when he gave us a black sun? It looks so dark and foreboding even on the sunny wall in our residence in Beijing.
If not a black sun, what color? The ranges are shown above. Or because the theme is a rather dark weapon, did he actually mean to do a dark image?
one friend has said Maki would not do a war like image he did here
Tanaka Ryohei (b. 1933) is drawn to a wide range of subjects, particularly Japanese houses, shrines, temples, farmhouses, large, weathered trees, and winding lanes, but earlier in his career and occasionally in more recent years he has concentrated on a single piece of fruit or a roots, on segments of trees, tree branches and bark...
1971 was a big year for Haku Maki He did over 100 different images of Japanese prints. Some, like this one, were big prints this one is 30.5 Inches x 15.25 It is 68/108 this is the abstract kanji for Mu or Nothing and I entitled Nothing The kanji starts at the top then cascades down to the final four strokes at he bottom.

Haku Maki tried to work until he died; the last images were not pretty. They were printed first on very thin paper, which was then “wrapped” around heavy shinkishi board. They are lithographs not done from wood blocks. From the late -`1980s Maki had stopped doing embossed prints burning instead to collages ad lithographed prints. These are among his last prints:

in 1990 Haku Maki produced as many as 6 different images of famed Mt Fuji
Fuji-san here are 3 each print from a different block. lithographs
in the print at the right -- blue mountain -- the blue starts out dark at the bottom and becomes lighter up the print
In 1971 Haku Maki Japanese Master print-maker was at the height of his creative powers He had already done several “big” prints and turned his skills to producing a dramatic prints, This Big Blue was one. It depicts a war instrument, a halberd Makli created this design so that it showed how character was written. He showed us how the stroke order flowed on a woodblock print...
In the early 1980s Haku Maki produced this unusual print. It has a kanji bottom margin (Mountain and Water) and is only slightly embossed. It is as if he started to do a lithograph and then decided to emboss it a bit It is a modest size print and not spectacular. By the time he did this print Maki had finished with embossed kanji and ceramics and was heading toward less compelling work. The design here is interrupting the abstract part for Mountain is also OK...
