Insho's representative work that he created in the year in which he received the Order of Cultural Merit. Regarding this work, he said, "I want to express my symphony in the painting by interpreting a musical score in my own way." The lines in different shades crisscross, overlap, and connect, producing a three-dimensional effect. The undulations of the splashes of Chinese ink and paints and the various colors subtly placed in the background seem to represent musical notes. While the influence of Informalism can be detected, it can be said that the energetic lines of Chinese ink, the effective use of the color gold, and the subtle textures and tones created with the original Nihon-ga paper and pigments associate this painting more strongly with the traditional Japanese art of decorative paper processing.
