Flowers and Birds - Handpainted Obi Design (Zuan)
Early - mid 20th century (c. 1930s?) original design hand painted on paper. 32cm x 42.5cm I think this design was for obi fabric, but possibly a kimono. This will have been stored most of its life in the makers' archive and the colours are still fresh and vibrant. The contrasting coral and aqua give it a modern feel. The design has a mix of Japanese and western floral and bird motifs, organised in a variation of a traditional pine bark diamond pattern.
