An exquisite Japanese byōbu screen showing a scene of wading cranes.

Byōbu is a form of Japanese art in which intricately detailed images are painted onto connected folding screens. The typical style is of the six-panel screen, as seen in this beautiful home ornament. The original function of byōbu screens was for protection from wind, although they were frequently used as room dividers for privacy, or simply as decoration.

As is characteristic of many byōbu, this screen is decorated with gold leaf to accentuate the beauty of nature in the image. Traditionally large quantities of gold leaf would have been used as a statement of wealth.

Attractively packaged, this screen will make a beautiful gift for the home.
