Gift of Hideo Date


Matted and framed.

Nine figures with yellow wings fly in green space over a low brown horizon. Four figures on right play musical instruments: large harpist in purple at center, bald clarinet player and floutist to the right and second harpist behind at upper left. Four figures to the left have mouths open as if singing: three hold open books. Below the purple harpist a figure holds a red bowl.
