Detail: Sengai (1750-1837) was a zen monk active in Hakata (present-day Fukuoka), Kyūshū during the Edo period. From the Museum’s vast collection, this exhibition features representative works such as “Hotei (Budai) Pointing at the Moon”, “The Universe”, “The Willow”, “Mazu and Linji” and still many others, making this the definitive and ultimate exhibition of Sengai. It will be a show in which you will be able to encounter Sengai’s paintings and calligraphy, to feel his stoic yet heart-warming messages, and to also discover his real image. We hope this exhibition will satisfy not only Sengai enthusiasts but also the beginners, hoping to meet the expectations of every fan.
