Recently at an art gallery, I was introduced to some works of Takashi Murakami. On quite a few of his paintings were symbols which looked like Chinese, some sort of a seal perhaps. There was a painting I really liked and I took a snapshot
so we see three symbols and then what looks like a seal. This is just one corner of the huge painting. My question is, what are these symbols? What do they mean? Are they Chinese, Japanese, or Kanji? My guess is Chinese and hence the post here. Do they collectively have a meaning? Is there a meaning-in-context here perhaps because they are on a painting?
