Heavenly Bamboo and Bird

This painting was purchased in an auction. It has a bird viewing the Nandia berries. I purchased this for use as a bonsai scroll. The size and dimensions are very nice. It is painted on silk, which is very beautiful. I do not know the age, but when it arrived, the scroll was in tatters and it had to be redone.

This scroll is for sale. For inquiries please contact Jonathan sales@customjapanesecalligraphy.com
Here are the dimensions of the scroll.
