Bold strong red abstract form, enhanced by Maki's use of color embossing, stands out in strong relief on black ground; a small polished circle within the angle of the upper arc, draws the viewers eye up to this accent. Strong calligraphic reminiscence of Japanese script, as frequently found in Maku's work, is much in evidence in this bold rendering of "Poem".
This is one of Maki's large prints, not often available.
