Thanks Clare Hollander for the hands and screen photos and for Brit Pyland identifying Al Wong as creator of the screen. Al wrote: Okusan helped me with making the portrait of Suzuki  Roshi.  When I asked her how tall he was, she simply  tapped  my lips  and that helped  me get the proper  scale.


Lost the source of this for now. That was Suzuki's translation of the last line of the poem on the han which literally translated more like, Respectfully don't be dissolute.


 

 

 


David Goldberg - who wrote:  I originally did a detailed pencil sketch of this Image of Suzuki Roshi after reading Zen Mind, Beginners mind in the late Seventies ,I never met him ,But appreciated his down to earth wisdom. After my parents passed on ,I rediscovered him and Painted this Painting. A Poet Friend of mind from the Bay Area sent me Zen is Right Here the other day.


 

Got this off Wikipedia with no artist name.

Had saved this clipping in archives for years. Just posted it and found the artist on Facebook to tell him and he sent the following silkscreen prints with pastel and/or watercolor.
