Item Description


Enjoy artist Mark Morse's personal exploration of a compilation of 13th Century Chinese Zen stories called the Mumonkan, or Gateless Gate, in skateboard form.

The successful bidder for this item will receive a Mumonkan-illustrated deck made from seven-ply 100% Canadian maple.

The Gateless Gate is a blog and personal pictorial reflection on the compilation of Zen cases referred to as the Mumonkan or Gateless Gate. In 2010, a series of events instigated this idea of completing a drawing for each of the Mumonkan’s 48 stories. It was a process that led artist Mark Morse through everything from pen and ink, to paper mache figures and Daruma decorated wooden totem poles.
