“Murasaki” Sculpture by Addé 2018

 

In honour of Murasaki Shikibu, author of the Genji Monogatari (Heian era XIth century).

Murasaki was an alias, taken from one of the characters then given to the author.

The meaning of Murasaki is the colour deep purple/ violet, hence the sculpture’s polychromy based on this colour, which might appear as a form of brown…

A 1951 Film « Genji Monogatari » director Kōzaburō Yoshimura, sceenplay by Kaneto Shindo.

Another version is (2011) « Genji Monogatari: Sennen no Nazo » directed by Yasuo Tsuruhashi
