Description:
" Unusual yuzen work on pale icy blue - almost white silk depicting what seems to be a cathedral. The colors are icy blues, many turquoise shades, lavender, violet, blue grey and muted light orange. You can see traditional Japanese motifs like the arabesques and florals right along side classical architectural elements like columns and the vaulted ceilings. It is like a beautiful watercolor painting. The base silk fabric has a very slight texture, is soft and has a great drape." This textile represents a complete panel from a kimono that has been carefully taken apart and threads picked out. Excellent condition. 14.5" x 53"
