Hidden Treasure - Enso

Book coverEnso: Zen Circles of Enlightenment

by Audrey Yoshiko Seo

These circular brushstrokes have become a kind of Zen cliché. Here's a chance to look past your preconceived ideas about them and appreciate their original energy, whimsy, and beauty. Each is a work of art that's executed in a split second-but the actual work in fact takes many years, for the enso is nothing other than an an expression of the whole life and practice of the person who brushes it.
