This listing is for a physical, printed pattern.

This pattern is an illustration of the beginning of a short story by Russian writer Anton Checkov, where the narrator, a painter, suddenly comes across a house:

"I came to a white house with a terrace and a mezzanine, and suddenly a vista opened upon a farmyard with a pond and a bathing-shed, and a row of green willows, with a village beyond, and above it stood a tall, slender belfry, on which glowed a cross catching the light of the setting sun. For a moment I was possessed with a sense of enchantment, intimate, particular, as though I had seen the scene before in my childhood."

This house becomes very special to him as he gets to know the daughters of the family and love ensues, then loss.

Clearly visible in Kyoko Maruoka's work, the green light in the mezzanine window, serves a link between the narrator outside and the young woman - and her sister - inside.

"I remember the green light in the window, and the sound of my own footsteps as I walked through the fields that night, when I was in love "
