On the Cover: Kazuaki Tanahashi | Bristle Cone Pine (1997)


The cover of A Sense of the Whole shows portions of Bristle Cone Pine, two matching 5′ x 12′ scroll paintings by Kazuaki Tanahashi commissioned by the Mountains & Rivers Workshop for Gary Snyder’s October 9, 1997, reading of Mountains and Rivers Without End in Kresge Auditorium at Stanford University. One scroll shows the bristlecone pine at night (back cover), the other in daylight.

With this, you get a sense of the scale:
