This one features a carp fishpreparing for its journey up the river,legend has it and it is more Chinese than Japanese,that a humble carp fish going against the wave to swim upstream andJUMP ACROSS THE WATERFALL to reach the otherside will become immortal and his fins will turn golden,hence the legend of a golden carp !
The noren measures 88 by 150 cm or 35 inches wide by 59 inches long.
It is in mint in box condition and comes with its own box,the first picture gives the total view but the color and texture is better seen in the second picture ,it is 100% linen.
The artist seal is found on the lowe end of the noren.
