Zen has deep roots in China, as it was developed during the Tang Dynasty and it is now practiced by followers all over the world. Instead of focusing on knowledge, it encourages people to take a step back and focus mostly on direct understanding, under the ever watchful eye of teachers. The Zen art prints brilliantly succeed at capturing the very essence of this school of meditation, as the images sooth the soul and also enhance the decor.
Some of the Zen posters celebrate the beauty of nature, others depict people meditating in specific positions, such as the lotus or half-lotus. Some posters go a step further and convey the message in a more direct manner, by including a short text in the powerful images. Meditation can be done both seating and standing, with both techniques being celebrated in these art prints, which also serve the purpose of raising awareness about Zen. One doesn’t necessarily need to be a believer or even willing to embrace these techniques, to appreciate the intrinsic beauty of these Zen prints.
