1000: "Au Paysan" (Uchida)

Brilliant streaks of diagonal sunlight suggest that the fruiterer's shop of the title is in the south of France - and it seems the owner of the trademark bicycle has already made a purchase at the florist next door.


This puzzle has a luxury "Cloth touch" finish.

The original title consists of the English word "Stage", really too inscrutable. See my entry in the Japanese dictionary jeKai for "Stage".

Uchida was born in 1960 in Kyushu, and after a degree in fine arts from Aichi University of Education, became hooked on lone travelling. From there he was drawn into sketching, getting his first magazine publication in 1988. Since then he has kept travelling the world, and produced a whole series of book publications. Having spent three years in Perth, from 1991 to 1994, he regards Australia as his second home, but has also visited many parts of Europe and America.

Note that he writes his name in the "Western" order; Uchida is his family name.

* This puzzle has a luxury "canvas" finish.
