76 x 140 | Handmade Mitsumata paper and pigment
In traditional eastern brush painting Bamboo is one of the three 'Winter Friends' or a 'Scholar Gentleman' standing for perseverance, resilience and dedication. Bamboo is a calligraphic delight with long thin elegant stems and curving evergreen pointy leaves.
This banner is painted on handmade Mitsumata paper from Japan which is unbleached and has a beautiful organic colour. The paper allows for smooth flowing brushstrokes and has delicate edges along with the watermarks of the paper makers Su or frame. in the finishing process the paper has been uniformly smoothed and wrinkled in a way that makes the piece look antique.
The banner is suspended from a simple batten and clear thread which can be removed on request if an alternative method of display is desired.
