The white walls of Byodo Temple are reflected in the shimmering lake. Narazaki wrote “Although this piece might seem quite ordinary, it is a masterpiece in its striking composition. One section of a corridor is viewed from the side, the light and dark of the pillars and eaves no doubt used with good result. The reflections of the trees and temple quiver on the surface of the lotus pond. Even the bright colour of the parched grass can be seen to heighten the overall effect.” The Byodo Temple complex is situated in Uji, Kyoto Prefecture. With perfect color.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.Mint.
