Olive Hill 12F (60.6 x 50cm) Written by Katsunobu Teshirogi


This work depicts a magnificent landscape with olive trees.

Lines of olive trees line the rolling hills, stretching far into the distance, each richly adorned with beautiful green foliage. With the region's fertile soil and plenty of sunlight, olive trees will grow healthily and produce lots of fruit.

This work will remind viewers of the bounty and fruitfulness of nature, and will make them realize that these fruits symbolize the peace and abundance of this place.
