Everything about "An Egret Amongst Lotuses" is timeless and delicate, particularly the fine paper, soft colors, and detailed brushstrokes. The painting is signed Kyokata and dates to the Taisho Period, but style of painting is reminiscent of the 17th century Rinpa School, a prominent school of Japanese painting. The term byobu means “wind wall” and as the name suggests, painted folding screens were originally used in Japanese homes to block drafts of air.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
