GORGEOUS ART Homongi Vintage Japanese Silk Kimono - Beautiful Watercolor Bamboo w/ Metallic HighLites on Cream Silk - Stunning Wall Art

1850-1880 This kimono has been embroidered with an extremely potent image of dragons, the most powerful of the mythical beasts, and Mt Fuji, the quintessential symbol of Japan. The striking red silk ground makes the image all the more dramatic.Yet this is an under-kimono (juban), so its design would not have been seen when worn. Instead it served to symbolically wrap the wearer with divine power and protection.
