Yuzen Antique-style Folding Screens “TAKARA”
Yuzen Antique-style Folding Screens “TAKARA” was created based on an antique Yamato-e that is
designated as a national treasure and an important cultural property in Japan. “TAKARA” is a new style of
artistic handcraft that is more than just a replica of an antique piece.
Having learned many of the painters who created Japanese national treasures, including Tawaraya Sotatsu and Ogata
Korin, originally started as painters for Yuzen kimono or Ougi (Japanese folding fans), we came up with the concept
“From Yuzen, back to Yuzen”. We asked Yuzen craftsmen to paint silk canvases covered with gold foil and to do it
with great sensitivity. The finished piece, we believe, is an authentic “Kenpon Kinji Saisyoku Yuzen Byoubu-e
(Yuzen painting on silk covered with gold foil)” and is a treasure to be kept and enjoyed for a long time.
