500: Tsumago (Komiyama)

A view of the old Nakasendo road over the Japan Alps, at Tsumago, one of the staging points. The artist amazes us with the ability to evoke the atmosphere of an old Japanese townscape from such restricted materials.

This puzzle has a matt washi-style surface.

The artist Komiyama Hôbô is a master of the art of paper cuts, or kiri-e (literally "cutting picture"). Komiyama is his family name; the pictures are signed with a highly stylised version of just the Hô character of his given name.
