This work illustrates an ancient Chinese poem by Li Ho (ad 791-817), Ancient Arrow Head, published in a book ‘Poems of Silence’

Tyson was well known for his illustations of poems – a year after this print was made, in 1969 he founded Tetrad Press  for the purposes of developing a new relationship between contemporary art and literature.

As mentioned, the work could be framed as is with the poem or could be folded / cropped to just display the print which is signed underneath.
