Ink on paper, by Sengai Gibon (仙厓義梵, Japanese, 1750–1837)

Left to right, adding strength to each form: tendai, shingon, zen [Sengai saw himself as an heir of Myōan Eisai, 1141–1215, who introduced Zen in Japan but never renounced his status as a Tendai monk…]

Right to left: infinity, form, multitude of forms [square = 2 triangles combined]

Neither one reading nor the other, neither both nor none?
