JAPANESE EMBROIDERED GREEN SILK THEATER KIMONO. Worked with gold thread to depict crane decoration. - 74 in. high.
It was not until I received a spectacular vintage Taisho kimono (from 1912-1925) that I could not ever imagine altering in any way that these scarves became reality and my wall has a magnificent new hanging. I think you can see in the details that the rinzu woven into the silk is an exotic pattern of cranes.
