This painting might look like a dead tree if it hadn’t been given a title.

Perhaps because of this, I have been told that a picture of a cherry blossom in full bloom would be better.

Certainly, I thought that might be a better way to decorate indoors.

However, I wanted to anthropomorphize and depict this old tree from the beginning. For that, this figure was better.

It is the ideal form of an old man.
