Surimono commissioned by Taiko-gawa
Shikishiban Surimono. Very good impression and colors. Generally very good condition.
1st of a series of 5 surimono relating to the story of the sun-goddess, Ameterasu, who hid in a cave thus depriving the world of sunlight. She would ultimately be lured out of the cave by other deities playing musical instruments outside of the cave.
