Description:
fine rinzu (damask) silk kimono featuring carp created with metallic thread weaving. Silk lining. 49" from sleeve-end to sleeve-end x 57" height. This kimono reflects the experimentation with tradition during the Taisho period and early Showa period; the artist in this example has taken the traditional auspicious carp motif, placing them under bold lavender color bands running in parallel angles, to produce a 'modern' graphic result.
