Default Has anyone ever seen...

One of these? This is a work of art that my mother created in Misawa, Japan, about 1953. She took a class, and made four of these , all different themes. I was wondering if anybody here has ever seen anything like this? The background is some kind of board that is very durable, to have lasted this long. The body and costume are all silk. The Samurai and his horse are "raised" off the background, like 3-D. If anyone speaks Japanese, they could tell what is written at the end of his bow. Sorry for the poor quality photo, but I shot it through the original glass frame.

An exquisite work of art and a fine picture also. But I can't help you with the Kanji...

Thanks Ordo, you should see this in "person". It's exquisite,57 years later... No discoloration, or fading at all. I remember growing up looking at these, but the only thing I remember about Misawa was the awful long, cold winters.
