Mt. Fuji Color Sumi Remounted

I had a customer that I worked with many years ago send me a scroll he had damaged cutting it with a knife. I took it apart and remounted the entire scroll.

I am not a good cameraman and my camera is very low quality. If you want to see how beautiful this frame job was, you would need to see it in person. Hopefully the bonsaiist will display it with a tree.

The scroll is finished with a gold hanging string, and a rosewood jikusaki with a machined end.

My only concern with using this in a bonsai display is the trees in the painting will interfere with the near/far perspective of the viewer. The bonsai should set the near perspective and Fuji should indicate the far distance.
