Faux Koans

“I had the idea of making Buddhist inspired prints featuring what I call faux koans since historically some of the earliest Japanese prints were devotional depictions of Buddhist saints or precepts sold to pilgrims traveling to shrines and temples. They are faux koans in the sense that they imply an ironic intent and emphasize mystification rather than clarification.” –Pat Nolan
