In 1968 and 69 Haku Maki produced Poem 5 for Festive Wine. That image was a paradigm of clarity as to what the kanji or Woman ought to look like. It was a smoothe svelte character. Yet at this same time, he also did this print, a tall gangly woman. She looks as if she is askelter, not all “together”. Or is the left leg longer than the right one? The print itself is done in the Maki manner: Size 10.5 “ x 10.5”...

This is a quite large Maki Persimmon print This is Work 74-67 Haku Maki did prints with Persimmon as a main theme from the early 1970s for well over a decade. This is a fairly large image: it shows one persimmon growing out from the tree, with leaves coming off the branch. The leaves are very clear: they have been tipped with shellac so they look very shiny . This is 43/154, here Maki used ink the color of the persimmon when putting his seal on the print...

This is a realistic horny toad, a species native to the American southwest. BUT this toad was carved in Hong Kong by the well-known carver, Mr. Chan Lai. Chan took the original wood, kept the back virtually as it was, but carved out legs and made it look so very good. Signed

Flower Song 3 In the Mid-60s Maki did a set of ten different images, entitled Flower Song This is Flower Song 3. It is a very abstract print: it is probably not kanji (Chinese characters); it is similar to prints entitled, say Dance. It could be the character for woman: at the left there may also be the kanji for woman (oona) with a single stroke perhaps penetrating the woman -- but is probably not...

78-2 (Water) In 1978 Haku Maki was nearing the end of his artistic effort using kanji (Chinese characters) as the main theme of his work. This print is one bold kanji, for Water. To make it easier for his gaijin admirers to know what it meant, he wrote "water' in the bottom margin...

This is a rarely seen Maki print; it was done after he had stopped doing embossed kanji and after he began doing prints with Ceramics as a theme. Maki did few white prints. This one, subtitled "empty" was done in 1981 The familiar embossing is seen in this print: the "dots" look like beads of a necklace, the sequin "dresses up" the print.There is foxing front and back, but that is all very old and stable. L is 46 cm w is 32 cm
