Hanging scrolls with assorted poems above and ink paintings below produced within Japan's Zen monastic community during the 1400s and 1500s are called poem-painting scrolls (shigajiku). This small painting was created much later in emulation of such works. While the original works often have a preface followed by poems by different monks, this composition has only a preface.
