THE AXE-CUT Print is inspired by the “axe-cut” brush stroke from the Song Dynasty landscape painting The Joy of Harvest.

Developed by the painter Li Tang from the Northern Song dynasty, the axe-cut technique uses angular, staccato brushstrokes to depict the rocky surfaces of mountain peaks. The brush stroke derives its name from its visual resemblance to chopped wood.

It is one of two major brush strokes used to depict the texture of rocks in landscape paintings. The color of the dress is inspired by the golden brown hue of the painting scroll and the style lines are outlined in the shape of mountain ranges. The skirt hem shape is symbolic of the reflection of mountains in water.


The Joy of Harvest is a masterpiece by Song Dynasty artist Ma Yuan (1160 – 1225), one of the most influential landscape painters of his time. Born into a family of painters, Ma Yuan served as a painter in the Southern Song court in Hangzhou. In this monochrome ink painting, villagers dance and sing along the mountain path, celebrating the harvest of the year. Steep mountains rise amongst an expanse of white clouds in the background. The ethereal and majestic atmosphere of mountainscapes in the background forms a stark contrast to the rowdiness of the villagers in the front.
