GIA Reader, Vol 12, No 3 (Fall 2001)

On the cover:
The ensho (circle painting) is as challenging as it is ambiguous. Rendered with delicate balance of control and spontaneity, it is said at once to represent complete emptiness as well as encompass the entire universe—nothing and everything. Others have described it as a representation of the moment of transformation, when samsara, the world of suffering, becomes nirvana, the world of enlightenment.
