Description

We estimate this scroll was drawn over 100 years ago.
It is slightly foxed overall as it was drawn years ago.
There is a small tear at the bottom of the mounting.
There are some faint spots and folds on the drawing part.
As a whole, the condition of this scroll is not so bad.
A Hoju (Buddhistic treasure ball) is drawn powerfully using Japanese Fude brush and black Sumi ink.
A Kanji poem is also written at the top.
The drawer (Kogyoku) was a priest of the Myoan-Ji Temple located in Kyoto.
The Myoan-Ji is the headquaters temple of the Fuke-Shu Sect of Zen Buddhism.
Kogyoku seems to have been a intermediate or high-ranked Buddhist monk in the temple.
