Native American Scene

This scroll is sold and is no longer available for sale.
 This scroll is also for the ABS For the Love of Bonsai convention in Saratoga Springs NY. This is specifically for my Bonsai Display Lecture on Friday.

The artwork was painted by polish artist Mariusz Szmerdt. I asked him to do some themes specifically with Native American themes. This specific painting has an Iriquois Indian in a canoe. I have a specific Toko no Ma display in mind for this and will use it in my lecture for bonsai display.

The scroll is in a Semi-formal Two Step scroll style called Nidan Hyougu. The cloth on the top and the bottom actually has faint horizontal stripes of alternating darker and red colors. I thought this was good for Autumn. The grey chuumawashi cloth has a purple which reminded me of morning mist. The scroll is completed with a Rosewood Jikusaki that is machined, and an Ouka Pink hanging string.

If you have questions about having a commission scroll made please contact to me at or call to 801-254-6842.
