1000: Gold (Haruyo)

The original title, Kogane Miyabi, says it all: "Golden elegance." The young model is ornately dressed in a silver and floral design kimono, but is still outdone by the backdrop - her outer robe of a golden peacock design.

Detail

This puzzle is printed on a special foil surface.

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.

* This puzzle has a metallic foil finish.
