Title of Scroll: Tora (Tiger)
Description: This 100% genuine and authentic Japanese hanging scroll (kakejiku) features a hand-painted image of a magnificent Asian tiger mounted on an elegant blue and gold silk scroll. The artwork is an original piece from the Edo/Meiji period, dated early to mid 1800s, and is not a print nor machine copy. The silk scroll backing itself has been replaced and is from the contemporary era (post-Showa period), hence the magnificent condition.
The condition of the scroll is excellent, with minimal wear - please refer to the photos for a closer look. Even the tiger picture itself shows clear and meticulous brush strokes for its hairlines and minute details - a stunning and well-preserved traditional Asian tiger work of art!
The entire scroll measures 178 cm x 44 cm, while the picture itself is 101 cm x 32 cm. The wooden storage box (not the original) is included, with the kanji characters for "tiger" (tora) written on it.
A fabulous and rare antique Japanese kakejiku - the tiger artwork has an omnipotent aura that deifies the animal's power, ferocity, and beauty. If you appreciate the old style and beauty of Japanese art, you will truly love this stunning piece!
