A bull is the ideal Zen animal.

When it moves, it really moves;
When it sits, it really sits.

This is a classic Zenga, composed of a minimum of brushstrokes yet still perfectly capturing the essence of the subject.

Tsuo was a Rinzai monk who spent most of his life as abbot of Toko-ji , a temple located deep in the countryside in what is now Tochigi Prefecture. Tsuo brushed simple Zenga in a lighthearted style. Zen bull paintings were his trademark. He was familiar with the beasts corralled in his neighborhood.
