Those familiar with Akino will, upon seeing this work, most certainly recall her great work from 1992, River Crossing. However, although both pieces depict water buffaloes crossing a large river, when compared to the flitting, dark clouds and the overflowing, roaring Daya River as depicted in River Crossing, this work is strikingly serene. The light-filled, dream-like world of the placid Ganges river is laid out here before us. This series of works depicting large rivers continues the next year with a piece of the same title, The Ganges, a work that seems almost like an abstract painting.
