Stone Sutra
Stone Sutra

“the now is” writing on the stone, ink on lime stone, piercing the hole, 1991 “Writing on the stone as a brush’s traveling the world; from north pole through the equator to south pole.” The writing, which starts, from the center of one side of a stone. makes its way clockwise, coiling to the other side of the stone. The beginning and the end of the writing are connected by Kariya piercing a hole in the middle of the stone. by Miki Miyatake, Japan Times, 1996
