Bust of a Satyr

Massimiliano Soldani Benzi

This small bust-length figure represents a mustached satyr turning his head toward his left. He wears an animal skin tied at his right shoulder over his bare chest. The liquid character of the cast bronze admirably captures the rippling muscles of the satyr's chest and the flowing curls of his hair and the animal pelt.

Calligraphy: Watching Ducks on a Spring Morning

Nukina Kaioku

In this monumental scroll, Nukina Kaioku has brushed a Chinese poem of his own composition, on the enduring theme of nature as refreshment for the spirit. Note his masterful variation of thick and thin strokes, wet and dry ink, stately and rapid movement.

The verses may be tentatively rendered into English as follows:

Mandarin ducks enjoy the fresh water; their graceful forms glow as they pass through channels in the reeds.

Pushing beyond the thickets [to the open pond], they call to one another again and again in the dawn.

A crimson mist breaks through gaps in the glade, its glow warming hidden nests.

Waking up with nothing to do, [I came here] to playfully row among the spring waves.
