Double Dragon 2

My second attempt at mounting was another version of Chloe’s calligraphy of the dragon character. 

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

chūberi - The interior multicolor frame is vintage child’s kimono of silk crepe. 

ichimonji - The gold edges at top and bottom of the artwork are from the border of an Indian sari.

ten and chi - The outer violet frames are silk habutae from the lining of a kimono.

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