Description: 100% Japanese genuine & authentic original kakejiku (hanging scroll). Fantastic artwork with deep rich colors that really bring out the autumn feel of the painting. Condition is quite good with some light foxing in some areas. A striking work of art that truly captures the eeriness of the autumn night on the plains, enhanced by the moon, rustic colors of the fall, and of course, the morbid skull. Would even make a great Halloween decorative piece! Please see and judge from photos.
