2000: Cloud Kannon (Kaname)

Kannon, the Goddess of Mercy, stands on a cloud, not quite entwined with a rather angry-looking dragon. In her left hand she holds a sprig of rice, and in her right a flask, from which she pours golden grains.

Experts in Buddhism say that she isn't the Goddess of Mercy after all, and is Avalokitêsvara, who was a man. Very puzzling.


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.
