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”...

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...

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
