Art Tenugui "Pine Tree and Wisteria"

Pine tree is an auspicious pattern to symbolize longevity as it is green even in cold winter. Wisteria is a traditional courtly pattern based on designs to symbolize Fujiwara family who was in power mainly in the 7th – 11th century. The design of wisteria hanging from pine tree is famous as the scenery in the popular Kabuki dance piece “Fuji Musume” (wisteria maiden).
