Description: In the foreground beautifully composed, delicate shadows of leaves reach up to the temple entrance where the focus is on a quiet female figure about to enter. A series of red verticals describe the temple's structure, the solid architectural forms contrast with the light cherry blossom in the distance, that add a light, gentle note echoing the gentle shadows of the leaves in the foreground.
