Juicy Zen

This Sumi-E Zen painting series is based upon a juicy Koan that reveals there is treasure to be found in every moment, no matter how perilous or mundane a situation may be.

In this Zen parable, a man is found hanging on to a vine off the side of a cliff with a tiger waiting above him, and a tiger waiting below. Certain death was to be found in all directions and yet the man notices a strawberry growing off the cliff face and has the juiciest, sweetest, tastiest meal of his entire life.
