Shoji 16 Fuyu, Shirakawago (Shoji 16 - Winter, Shirakawago)

Hiroto Norikane


This is one of Norikane's master pieces. Extremely fine details. Superb shading and hand-colored details. Truly beautiful print.
Shoji is a room divider or door consisting of translucent washi paper over a wooden frame. Shoji doors are often designed to slide open, or fold in half, to conserve space that would be required by a swinging door. The Japanese used Shoji screens for many purposes, including tea ceremonies, concerts, dances, Buddhist rites and outdoor processions. Very beautiful and peaceful scene. Please see superb details. This beautiful print brings tranquility and relaxation into any room.
