SCA – Monochrome Momoyama Era Style Scrolls

Standard

For our annual Christmas Party (aka Yule Feast) I wanted to offer some gifts to those who attended my tea tasting and history class. So, I teamed up with a local artist who is also in the SCA and created these… I did the research, she did the epic art. The artist herself did great work and Im honored to have been able to make use of her fantastic talents.

*Hand made paper
*The themes in each painting is specifically tailored to a historical poem from pre-edo
*The themes and poems are tailored to a winter tea tasting
*The painting are in the sume monochrome style made popular in the momoyama.
*The scrolls themselves are not period in style..just in spirit.

The primary themes in the paintings are….
*Hares *The Moon *Plovers *Bamboo *Pine – all of which are December / winter themes

And so I present…the mini scrolls:
