In 1975 Shimizu Kosho was chosen Abbot of Todai-ji Temple in Nara. He remained in this position for only a rather short time, resigning in 1981. For the remaining nearly twenty years of his life Shimizu Kosho was dedicated to the life of an artist: He became a prolific and eccentric painter, calligrapher and figurative potter.
