55 x 9.5 inches

Double Dragon 1

My first attempt at mounting was a piece of calligraphy by my daughter Chloe. 

The artwork - On New Year’s Day, 2012, she wrote the character for dragon twice, in running script.

chūberi - The interior red frame is vintage kimono-lining thin silk called momi

ichimonji - The gold edges at top and bottom of the artwork are gold printed pale green paper.

ten and chi - The outer blue-violet frames are Duppioni silk.

 finials - The decorative finials at either end of the bottom roller are ceramic drawer pulls.
