Shibayama style Shadow Box Wall Hanging
This is a wonderfully detailed wall hanging that features mother-of-pearl, coral, shells, and what appears to be a type of hard stone but may also be resin resembling maw sit sit all on a gold background. These diverse materials create a nature scene with a tree, birds, stones, and even the sun. The artwork is bordered by silk brocade and framed in a round black lacquer frame. The piece was purchased from an estate sale as a Taiwanese work of art but true origin is unknown.
There is no damage. However, based on the old tape on the back cover, it appears that the cover was removed at some point then replaced. It has a diameter of approximately 18 inches.
