This cushion features a beautiful design taken from the drawing Sparrows amid Plum Blossom and Bamboo, (detail) by Taki Katei (1830-1901), ink and colour on paper.
Horizontal paintings were hung above the doorway, angled down into the room. This image includes a profusion of lush green bamboo leaves and dense white plum blossom. The cropping at top and bottom gives the sense we are with the birds high up in the foliage.
The cushion has a plain back and comes complete with a fibre filled pad.
