Item Details
Location:
Japan
Date:
Taisho period (1912-1926)
Description:
A silk kurotomesode featuring a large dragon-in-the-clouds motif. Complete white inner kimono, so the garment is relatively heavy. The dragon and clouds were created by an accomplished artist utilizing painting, sumi-e and metallic embroidery. Five yuzen mon. 51" from sleeve-end to sleeve-end x 64" height. This tomesode may have been created for a special function: the tall size (64") and the huge dragon motif is unusual for a normal kurotomesode
