This woodblock print depicts a bamboo forest in sumi-e style. Bamboo shown in sumi ink is called “Bokuchiku” in “Bunjin-ga” (literally painting). The work depicts naturalistic views of bamboo forests. The artist illustrates the graceful but strong nature of these trees as they bend but do not break. Bamboo is a motif used in Japanese culture to represent resilience.
