Scroll 3: Made in Japan

Under the guidance of my Sensei. When I went to select the cloths for this scroll, the first thing my Sensei said about this combination was a specific Japanese term. E-mail me to in order to find out what term he used. This kakejiku or wallscroll was made for the American Bonsai Society 2013 convention, but is for sale. For pricing please contact at the above e-mail.

The scroll is for a fall/winter scene with a woodpecker. It is in the Yamato Hyougu  style, with a Kinran surrounding the painting, a Shoken (pure silk) chuumawashi, and a Shike silk for the Ten/Chi. It is finished with a Brown/Red flecked Kakehimo and a wood lacquered jikusaki.

I don't mean any disrespect!
But I beg to differ!
I hear the peckers echos
loud rhythmic noise patterns
in a repeating familiar drumming.
And feel the hunger for the insects
the pecker is drilling for.
Again these feelings are but seconds in time then captured in my memory forever. Like the Day,Place,Weather,Time or people with me.

Sorry J-san
misunderstood your question thought your were talking about painting. Now realize your were asking about mounting and cloths used...jag
