Biography Sengai Gibon
Gibon Sengai ranks along with Hakuin as the greatest of Zen artists. He often depicts his favorite plant, bamboo, alongside a brief calligraphy that draws the time-honored parallel between its strength and flexibility and that of a true gentleman (kunshi, in Chinese junzi). Bamboo is also the perfect Zen plant: graceful, pliant yet unbreakable, useful in many ways, and good to eat (as bamboo shoots) as well.
