Haku Maki was a Japanese print master of the late 20th century His prints at the time this one was published were strong on the use of kanji and abstract designs s as shown he. In this case; the design is abstract, it show archaic images which we are trying to understand here the print is large well designed and carried off. The seller Ashley Brasca of Winnipeg Canada wrote to me about this print: “It is special because of the texture and physical quality achieved on the surface. This artist has used special reduction print making technique on cement to create an exceptional implied texture to the surface of the print, there is also a strong depth of color too. i am an art teacher myself and i studied printmaking at university of Manitoba. for this reason i recognized its quality. ” Poem 68-3 is good mid 60s big red. It is very abstract, I still do not know the meaning of the ideographs in the print. It has no kanji in the bottom margin to help me understand what Maki was portraying. Such lack of information is not rare in Maki prints of this period the left side of the print shows a figure for child; we are not clear about the rest. restored
