Haiku by Winona Baker (Canada). Artwork by myself. ----- I went to a Japanese calligraphy show at a museum by the Todaiji Temple, where big Buddha statue is enshrined. The large calligaraphies were done by a 26-year-old lady with Down's syndrome. Very powerful works. Her mother is a calligraphy master and taught her challenged daughter the skill. Both of them were at the show, and we chatted a little.
The calligraher's name is Shoko Kanazawa.The kanji on the screen is "Hope".
