Soichi Sunami, Haystack, c.1935

“Hay Stack” depicts an agricultural scene in autumn, with
piles of straw stacked high against a blue sky.

The “New York Shimpo” wrote that “Hay Stack” suggests the
eternal nature of heaven and earth, but, regrettably, the color
tones have lost their monotonous quality.”
