Beautiful Chigiri-e, Japanese torn paper collage art on a sturdy shikishi art board.

Chigiri-e (ちぎり絵) is a Japanese art form in which the primary technique uses coloured paper that is torn to create images, and may resemble a water colour painting.The technique dates from the Heian period ( running from 794 to 1185 ) of Japanese history when it was often used in conjunction with calligraphy. Handmade paper is essential for the creation of chigiri-e images.NOTE: Please be aware that all of the shikishi which I offer for sale are vintage items. There are some slight imperfections such as age spots.
