Musicians Gathering

This wall scroll depicts a scene of seven musicians playing instruments and singing for the pleasure of a nobleman and his company. There is a poem written on this wall scroll, however it has little to do with the musician scene, is ancient, and therefore hard to translate (so we skipped it).

This wall scroll is designed to have a classic look (like an antique).

It should be noted that this is a "partial print". The black detailed lines were printed on the special handmade paper. We don't do a lot of partial prints like this, but many people kept requesting antique-styled wall scrolls. I finally picked some up on my last trip.

The use of the printing process for this artwork keeps the price of the artwork affordable (it would be more than 3 times more if this was 100% hand-painted). All of the colored portions are hand-painted.
