Isn't it interesting that a land draped in pure white snow is one of the most beautiful sights. I mean, it is only one color and one texture over all. Isn't this the whole idea of minimalism and purity in Japanese art? Also purity of soul and of heart.
Simple like snow. Pure like snow.
"Behold, You desire truth in the innermost being,
And in the hidden part You will make me know wisdom.
Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." Psalm 51:6-7
