This is an Etegami collage inspired by a marvelous quote from the best-selling author of fantasy novels, Ursula K LeGuin. The eggplant is painted on a washi card with sumi ink and water-soluble gansai paints, then cut out and glued to a background of pale yellow washi speckled with silver and gold. The collage is reinforced by being glued to a blank card. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines simple images with thoughtful words.
