Summer Kakejiku

In Japan, at home, there are not pictures hanging on the walls all the times, every season is accompained by some decoration and a new picture, painting or calligraphy is displayed on the wall. I love this harmony with season, nature and universe of traditional Japanese culture. This nice kakejiku (calligraphy or drawing on a scroll) representing a suski, symbol of the end of Summer accompained by a nice chabana (flower composition), the porcelain sphere is an incense box called natsume and is used in the tea ceremony. In this picture is used a traditional golden screen.
