    • Description

      We estimate this scroll was drawn at the end part of the Edo period (1603-1868) or in the Meiji era (1868-1912).
      It is foxed overall as it was drawn years ago.
      There are some spots on the painting part.
      Three tears on the mounting are reinforced by attaching Japanese papers from the backside. (Please refer to the picture).
      As a whole, the condition of this scroll is not so bad.
      Daruma (Bodhidharma) is depicted artistically using Fude Japanese brush and Sumi ink.
      A San writing in two Kanji characters is also drawn at the top, however, we do not understand the meaning of it, sorry.
