Kao Ninga, Monk Sewing (early 14th century)

I missed yesterday’s post, so I’m making up for it late on a Sunday night.  Not going to say much here, but look past the goofy expression on the monk below, his five-o’clock shadow, and his pointy toes.  Instead, focus on his eyes and how they drag us to to the needle at the end of the thread.

I like this.  I like the intensity with which the monk approaches even the most mundane of tasks.
