Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The picture is housed in an impressive Japanese wood frame with multimetal hangings.
The picture is made using an ancient Japanese handicraft called oshi-e, the images are made from folded fabric, the craft originally came from using up scraps of kimono. This piece is the finest example of the craft we know of, each cherry blossom petal has been individually made.
A similar panel by Seppō was exhibited at the Venice International Exhibition of 1897
