6 Panel screen with a white elephant & monkey

Price:  11.900,00

Six panel byôbu (room divider) with a rare painting of a large white elephant standing under a Paulownia tree (kiri) in bloom with a monkey on its shoulder. The Paulownia is considered as the tree of life. The elephant has been painted on purpose in a “non fitting” manner – partly going beyond the frame to underline the size of this impressive and important animal. The combination of the elephant and a monkey might be a one of a kind image.
