1000: Dream of fortune (Hakuga)

The treasure ship comes home, with its usual occupants, surrounded by all the right symbols: cranes, Mt. Fuji, hawk, pine, eggplant, and turtle. Most of the treasure is bundled up, but we see the red coral at the side of the boat. Daikokuten and Ebisu are enjoying a game of go, though curiously they have the stones placed in the squares (usually they go on the intersections).

The artist was born in 1948, in Niigata. After working for a textile company, he went independent as a textile designer. He has his own individual drawing style, bringing a fresh approach to many traditional art themes.

He goes by his given name, Hakuga, in the traditional way, signing his paintings in a stylised, but non-cursive form.
