From the most collectible new curations, an antique 3×5 pictorial tapestry from Japan, handwoven in silk circa 1890-1900.
On the Design: This coveted turn-of-the-century work enjoys a bold depiction of tigers sitting by a stream in the wild. A subtle artist’s signature in Japanese Kanji is found in the lower-left corner, further lending to the rare provenance. Connoisseurs may further note a brilliant textural element, marrying the setting’s depiction of nature and the warm beige-brown and green colors of grass and flowing water in a uniquely immersive fashion even for this regal origin. A masterpiece of culture with the utmost quality of craft and graphic personality like so few in existence.
On the Condition: In pristine condition, exclusively for wall-hanging projects as this construction is not suitable for flooring.
