1000: White stallion (Kaname)

There is a tradition, we're told, that a horse will never fall to the left; in an age in which the left-handed could be safely ignored, this made the horse a symbol of prosperity and good fortune. More generally, as the commentator on the box says, a white horse is seen as a good omen in many cultures of the world.

The painter Ozuma Kaname was born in 1939, in Niigata. He studied traditional Japanese art, and his pictures are generally based on traditional themes.

Ozuma is his family name: he signs paintings with the single character of his given name only.
