This small painting on paper dates from the early to mid Japanese Showa period (1928-1989) and features images of proud roosters with impressive plumage. This original ink-on-paper piece may have been used as an original art template by kimono pattern-makers. This unique Japanese art piece is in poor condition with some holes, tears and creases. There are also some marks and stains as well as a darkened patina of age. A wonderful candidate for framing and display.
