||Painting itself is grey and black "sumi," with brown and orange inks on light tan silk.
||Entire "kakejiku" (hanging scroll) is 17 3/4 x 75 overall.
||Light tanish silk (artwork) mounted on nicely flower-patterned greenish silk; with different tan silk used top and
bottom; cream colored with gold-highlighted silk
"ichimonji" brocade top/bottom; cream colored with gold-highlighted silk brocade
hanging "futai" at top; BONE end-pieced bottom roller.
||Good to Very Good.
(Four small/square repairs to upper left artwork; few scattered marks; light soiling. A few wrinkles, but hangs nicely.)
||A nicely painted "jungle crow" perched "cawwing" on the branch of an oak tree--nicely mounted as a hanging
scroll. A unique, truly one-of-a-kind artwork.
