Two pigeons in flight between falling ginkgo leaves


Item code : DUB060

Artist Koson Ohara
Subject Animal & Birds
Publisher Daikokuya
Format Tanzaku
Size 18.4 x 34.5cm


This print shows two pigeons in flight, one of them a colourful array of blue, violet and brown shades, the other one a pure white colour. They are depicted against a dark, cloudy sky. To their left, falling, are three autumnal ginkgo leaves. Because of all of the benign properties, such as the unity of opposites and the bearing of hope, as well as the health benefits usually connected to ginkgo trees, they are associated with longevity.  As such, this composition seems to be an homage to the changing of the season and to the beginning of winter.

A special feature of this print is that the dark background shows the grain of the cherry wood that was used to print it beautifully.
