Product Description

This is an authentic Japanese kite from Tsugaru in Aomori prefecture, comes in the frame from mid. 1900's, signed on the side.

The Tsugaru tako is a traditional handcrafted kite with traditional Tsugaru style paintings. The paintings on the kites (or tako-e) are heavily influenced by the ukiyo-e painters of Edo. Use of wide, powerful brush strokes in equally strong colors such as red, black, and green are predominant in the Tako-e paintings.

The backing is screwed and the glass is slid in from the side.
