The frog is a symbol of homecoming in Japan because its name, kaeru, is a word that also means “to return.” So the frog has becoming a symbol for returning home.
Daniel Mackie is the artist behind The DM Collection. This series of watercolours is heavily influenced by the Japanese print makers of the Ukiyo-e period, which flourished between 1670 and 1870. Ukiyo-e was central to forming the West’s perception of Japanese art in the late 19th century, particularly the landscapes of Hokusai and Hiroshige. Like these great masters Daniel seeks to create a harmonious accord between a highly stylised form and the flowing lines of nature, creating decorative designs that lift the spirit and warm the heart
