 SMITHSONIAN AMERICAN ART MUSEUM ACQUIRES MARK LINDQUIST WOOD SCULPTURE - GIFT TO RENWICK GALLERY BY JANE AND ARTHUR MASON
AKIKONOMU in-situ at Lindquist Studios Gallery ca. 1989
Mark Lindquist's Ichiboku Sculpture AKIKONOMU is in the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Renwick Gallery

Excerpts from the novel Tales of Genji:
The southwest quarter was assigned to Akikonomu. For her mother, Lady Rokujo had once lived there. The hills, preserved from the old garden, were chosen for their rich autumn colors. Clear spring water went singing off into the distance, over rocks designed to enhance the music. There was a waterfall, and the whole expanse was a wild profusion of autumn flowers and leaves. The beauty of falling leaves exceeded that of the mountains of Sagano, a reputed place for autumn sight seeing.  
In Empress Akikonomuís autumn garden, the plantings were more beautiful than usual. All the autumn colors were gathered together, and emphasized by low fences of black and red. Though the flowers were familiar, they looked different in shape. The morning and evening dews were like gemstudded carpets. She returned to her residence in Rokujo. They forgot the springís garden, which had been so pleasing a few months before.  ( http://www.man-pai.com/Genji/Genji_21_Otome.htm  )
