big red Poem 71 – 74 is a rarely seen Maki big red. It shows a three- character phrase from Daoist literature 心善渊 “Heart likes a deep pool, clear and calm, not affected by external environment.” As depicted by Maki, it is a stunning print. It was seen electronically but once in the past decade. It is coming back to Asia with a big red roar. It is embossed, the red design surrounded by black ink, and is typical of a short period in Maki’s life—the early 1970s—when he did such dramatic prints. This big red has it all—pink splash on the kanji, a blue dash above the black field and a black sun below the red field.
