Bonsai Tansaku Scroll 2

This was a separate order from the Golden State Bonsai Federation show. It is a georgeous cloth, with a simple pattern. The poem in this one is referenced in a previous post for Autumn season. Seifuu Banri no Aki. Hopefully, we will see this kakejiku also paired and displayed with a bonsai someday.

The scroll is written in Gyousou. A mix of cursive and semi cursive, by Yoshimi Yamada Maples. The scroll is completed with a Shitan (Rosewood) jikusaki and the Kodai Saniro Hanging String.

Dimensions as follows:
