Ashinano vs Ma Yuan

For a while, this frame http://ykk.misago.org/Volume8/26-27 (the upper one) had me worried. I knew I had seen it before.

And suddenly I remembered where. It resembled a painting by Ma Yuan (active 1190-1225), precisely this one...


The similarities goes beyond the composition. In Ma Yuan painting, the main character is a philosopher, a taoist I think, who watches the world... like Ashinano's Alpha...

Quite an artist, this Ashinano...

Does the Taoist philosopher get dizzy and fall over in the next panel?

My first impulse is to find a YKK match for the Mona Lisa...
