In the period 1966 67 Haku Maki did two large series with Song as the theme
There was Flower Song, series of 10 different prints. There was Animal Song which was Maki’s Asian Zodiac series, with 12 images It was also a small series with small editions – 50 in the case of Animal Song (released in Kyoto so very hard to find: only one friend ahs the full set), I do not know who has the full set of Flower Song.
Equally rare is Moon Song. Many years ago I saw Moon Song 1 and did not buy it, this time I snapped it up. I show it below is it a necklace as one may call the “companion piece” shown beside it but done in 1981
Moon Song is simple and elegant. No complicated calligraphy No snappy colors. “Just” an embossed design of large beads forming a necklace and one small one coming with a small two colored bead” in the center. It has been hidden for so long! copyright Daniel Tretiak 2013 bead is the moonn -- front and back
