The "Six Persimmons" is a painting from the 13th century and Wikipedia's lovely description of its meaning helped me decide on this name for my studio:
"In philosophy, the painting of persimmons by Mu Qi (13th Century Monk) exemplifies the progression from youth to age as a symbol of the progression from bitterness to sweetness. The persimmon when young is bitter and inedible, but as it ages it becomes sweet and beneficial to humankind. Thus, as we age, we overcome rigidity and prejudice and attain compassion and sweetness. Mu Qi's painting of Six Persimmons is considered a masterpiece."
