Doreen is right about the usual progression, However, Kokonoe( former
Chiyonofuji) loves and appreciates artwork like you would not believe.

Kitanoumi couldn't care less.
So, sounds good to me.

CNN reported on the artist: “Few artists so completely dominate their
field that their name becomes synonymous with the subject matter, but Lynn
Matsuoka has succeeded in capturing the essence of Sumo and has won a
loyal following along the way”

Her artwork is in corporate and private collections around the world, in
the Morikami Museum collection, and was recently requested by the National
Sumo Museum in Tokyo .

Thank you for visiting our installation at the Hampton Classic this summer!
