Otagaki Rengetsu | Tanzaku

SKU: R1736

The most amazing feature of this poem sheet (tanzaku) is the decoration of the mounting. An so far unidentified artist added pine seedlings in gold paint to the dark brown-reddish texile mounting. Very unusual. 


As it has for 10,000 ages
the onset of spring
brings singing
to these sacred isles
the people of Yamato.
