Lotus Moon

£9.99

Product description

At the age of 33, Otagaki Nobu renounced a world that had visited great tragedy upon her (the death of two husbands and two infant children) and was ordained as a nun, taking the Buddhist name Rengetsu, or Lotus Moon. The rest of her long and productive life was devoted to spiritual pursuits, service to others and a multifaceted career as a poet, calligrapher, potter and painter. This is a selection of her finest waka poetry. Illustrated with reproductions of Rengetsu's pottery, painting and calligraphy, Lotus Moon is an invitation to commune with the soul of a remarkable woman and her artistic legacy.

Inklings paperback. The covers are rather soiled and there is an ink inscription on the title page. Otherwise in very good condition with no other marks and good binding. No pagination.
